Jonathan Djanogly hosts Parliamentary reception to celebrate EDGE one-stop-shop launch


17th November 2015

Local businesses, education providers and stakeholders joined EDGE partners at a Westminster reception hosted by Jonathan Djanogly to celebrate the official launch of its one-stop-shop to promote and deliver industry-led training and development to support the future economic growth of the region.

EDGE: Sharper Skills for Enterprise (EDGE) evolved from the Alconbury Enterprise Zone Skills Group, which was set up with local public and private sector partners to support the creation of over 8,000 potential jobs from the delivery and development of Alconbury Weald.

Working with local businesses, training providers, jobseekers and schools, EDGE is helping to improve the transition between education and industry, address core skills gaps, improve employer engagement in skills development and ensure relevant and effective training.

Jonathan Djanogly said: “EDGE is providing an innovative and forward-thinking service that seeks to address recruitment of staff with appropriate skills sets, one of the barriers to growth most commonly cited by Huntingdonshire businesses. EDGE exemplifies the benefits that public-private sector collaboration can bring. By including the developers of Alconbury Weald, Urban&Civic, the EDGE partnership has created a model that has longevity and isn’t reliant on short-term funding schemes: Alconbury’s development will be 25 years in the making.”
