Our Projects

Workforce Development Board (WDB) is working on the development of effective resources and partnership projects that support employer engagement and workforce development. For information about our current projects, please click here.

Over the course of the LEPC pilot, which ran from December 2015 to March 2020, the WDB pioneered new and innovative approaches to local employment planning within five strategic themes. Please see below for the list of projects under each of the five key areas: Labour Market Information and Intelligence, Integrated Planning, Service Coordination for Employers, Research and Innovation, and Shared Best Practices.
