ESF Skills for Business

Oxfordshire is one of the UK’s economic success stories, with strong foundations and world-leading assets, giving it a reputation as one of the best locations in the world to innovate. OxLEP recognises that developing ‘people’ and ‘skills’ is critical to ensuring economic success.

Community Employment Plans Alt Row

Community Employment Plans (CEPs)

Across Oxfordshire, there are multiple large-scale infrastructure projects being developed or planned. In order to maximise the benefits of the developments on communities, we aim to ensure that local people can better access to job opportunities. These are led through the development of Community Employment Plans (CEPs). 

CEPs are employer-led initiatives which can form part of S106 planning obligation for significant developments which can include Apprenticeships and employment or training initiatives for the long term unemployed and those furthest from the workforce.
