Sector Action Groups

Supporting Industry by developing employer led skills solutions
ESB Board Meeting 2016

Our sector action groups are key to the success of the ESB.

These groups are made up of employers and other stakeholders who want to make a positive contribution to addressing the skills challenges within our priority sectors. The members of these group work together to identify and develop industry-led solutions to the skills challenges these sectors face.

Each group is led by an ESB sector lead and supported by a member of the ESB secretariat.

Get Involved

We are always looking for new employers to get involved with the work of the ESB. Often that first involvement is through becoming part of our sector action group network of employers.

Employers in this network are key to our success and are at the forefront of enabling us to deliver real change in Essex. Through these groups employers can support a wide range of different activities ranging from; strategic development of skills solutions; working with colleges on curriculum development; delivering assemblies in schools; or working to support students from our Education and Industry Programme.
