The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (BCLEP) and Black Country Skills Factory invite feedback on the preferred option for the Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills (ECMS) endorsed by the BCLEP Board at its April 2015 meeting.
This follows the provisional allocation of capital funding of £7.6m by government for a new ECMS for the Black Country as part of the 2014 Growth Deal. The Board’s decision was based on a feasibility study commissioned by the Black Country Consortium Ltd and a project overseen by an employer-led Feasibility Steering Group.
It should be noted that the ECMS proposal is subject to further BCLEP and BIS/government approval, following the submission of a more detailed business case, expected by autumn 2015.
Responses can be submitted to Colin Parker (Skills Factory Director) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All responses should be received by 17.00 on 1st June 2015 using the ECMS response document above.
