Local Response Fund


The Local Response Fund (LRF) was an ESF funded project that enabled the college to undertake an extensive programme to respond to emerging skills issues affecting regional employers.

Designed to support the objectives of the Leeds City Region Skills Plan and developed in strong collaboration with regional partners the LRF presented a unique opportunity for organisations to support Leeds City College and the Leeds City Region LEP to deliver a range of innovative approaches to addressing skills issues within each LRF Project.

The programme produced some significant research collateral that identifies the new emerging skills needs of employers across the City Region, accessed below:
