The Department for Education has published the Local Skills Improvement Plans from the pilot project participants. They can be found here.
Comments around governance are contained with the plans, for example:
‘An existing effective governance structure is in place with the LSIP Board providing strategic direction for the Trailblazer. The Board members are committed to continuing to provide oversight and direction for the rollout of the LSIP and review the governance processes once there is further guidance from Government to ensure we are in line with requirements. This will include a full review of the Board composition to ensure the right local representation of members from across businesses and partners. The Board will create tight governance arrangements and undertake due diligence processes. Board members will be asked to complete declarations of interest statements, and operational terms for transparent commissioning processes will be devised’.
