Our Targets

We recognise the importance of setting out clear, measurable goals by which we will measure our performance.

In our Strategic Economic Plan 2016-30, we committed to seven challenging but realistic targets against our core objectives:

  • Create 250,000 private sector jobs by 2030 and be the leading Core City LEP for private sector job creation
  • Increase GVA by £29bn by 2030
  • Decrease unemployment to the national average by 2020, and have the lowest unemployment amongst the LEP Core Cities by 2030
  • GBSLEP to be the leading Core City LEP by 2030 for GVA per head
  • Increase the percentage of the working age population with NVQ3+ to the national average by 2025
  • Increase productivity rates to the national average by 2030
  • GBSLEP to be the leading Core City LEP for quality of life by 2030

Performance against these indicators is assessed as the first item of business at every LEP Board meeting. You can read the most recent dashboard here.
