Causeway Coast and Glens Labour Market Partnership (LMP) is a new, DfC funded programme established to address key challenges in the local labour market. The programme aims to improve employability outcomes and labour market conditions locally by delivering a tailor-made action plan reflecting local conditions and needs. The LMP will support the delivery of Employability NI and as such will work closely with people that are unemployed, under-employed or needing to upskill. The LMP will also work closely with local employers who are looking to attract talent to their business. The Priority Sectors Personal Learning Account Fund has been developed to enable participants to gain new skills and qualifications to secure employment, or to progress in their current employment.
