Our Local Education and Training Board is often referred to as our LETB. The Board is responsible for planning and commissioning education and training on a local level, in line with the national overarching plans and strategy.
Jane Barrie has been appointed as the chair of the new regional LETB for the south following HEE Board’s decision to move from 13 LETBs to four new LETBs based on the four regions.
The new Chairs will be working closely with the outgoing Chairs over the course of the next few weeks to ensure that an orderly handover takes place and that business continuity is maintained. The new LETBs will carry out the same functions as the previous 13 boards, but on a larger footprint. However, the 13 local HEE teams and the funding to these remains unchanged.
This is specifically designed to support the aims of the Five Year Forward View and the current development of Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) and the Local Workforce Action Boards (LWABs) which HEE will lead.
Further information will follow.
