Staffordshire County Council has recently published its new Economic Strategy 2023-2030 and alongside this the Staffordshire Leaders Board has agreed an economic vision and priorities and a pipeline of priority economic growth projects to support the future development of the local economy.  

An Employment and Skills Strategy 2023-2030 has been developed to support this and can be used to guide future employment and skills work programmes, to enable effective communication of Staffordshire’s shared employment and skills goals, and to inform the development of the Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) for Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. 

A summary brochure of the Staffordshire Employment and Skills Strategy 2023-2030 has also been produced.

Staffordshire Jobs & Careers has endeavoured to make the below resources as accessible as possible within our means to meet WCAG 2.1 standards. However, we accept that some of the attached documents are not yet accessible to all users using screen reader software.

We are continually working on improving our accessibility and user experience, and hope that in the near future we can provide fully accessible resources. Our full accessibility statement can be found here.
