As part of the Sussex LSIPs action plan – Future Skills Sussex Improvement Framework, the LSIP team at Sussex Chamber of Commerce are continuing work to gather local intelligence and information to inform and update our evidence base and continued skills conversations across the area.


Over the next few months, we will be updating all the existing data intelligence, which is available on this website, and this will include undertaking surveys with businesses and local skills providers.


Sussex Business Survey 2024

Your views are vital to our continued understanding of the local skills needs

The purpose of this business skills survey is to gather intelligence from Sussex businesses to aid in the continuing development and delivery of the LSIP and help local education providers to put on the provision that meets the skills needs of businesses.


To thank you for your time in supporting the LSIP and completing this survey, the first 50 organisations to do so will be entered into a prize draw and three organisations will be picked out to receive a voucher for a free training course provided by Sussex Chamber of Commerce.  Our training events can be found on the Sussex Chamber  website.


The closing date for this is Friday 2 February 2024.

Please click here to begin the survey.


Education & Skills Provider Survey 2024

Calling all education and skill providers – we want your views

As stated, over the next few months we are looking to update all our skills evidence-based data and this will help inform our annual progress report to be published in June 2024.


This survey is specific to you as providers and the more comprehensive your response, the more in depth the intelligence will be that we share with employers and the Department for Education (DfE).


The survey consists of 21 questions and is broken down by the themes within the Future Skills Sussex Improvement Framework relating to skills provision.


The closing date for this is Friday 2 February 2024.
