What if we have a skills capital proposal that it is not quite ready to submit?

It is strategically important for the Local Enterprise Partnership to have a strong awareness of potential projects even though only at conceptual stage. In order to gain a better insight of future skills needs the Partnership will engage in activities to collect these conceptual projects. Wherever possible the Partnership will help to develop conceptual proposals towards funded projects. Please contact Pete Johnson to discuss.
