What is a LEP?
Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) are locally owned partnerships between local authorities and businesses. They play a central role in determining local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth and the creation of local jobs.
Where are the LEPs?
There are 39 different LEPs across England. The two LEPs that cover the B&HPN are Hertfordshire LEP and SEMLEP (South East Midlands).

Why do I need to be involved?
LEPs are being given increasing responsibility for producing Apprenticeship plans, skills plans, and growth plans that will start to decide priorities for government funding.
