MEET Lisa Devayya, pictured, who has joined Dacorum Borough Council as the new learning and skills regeneration officer.

Prior to joining the council, Lisa worked as a business adviser, for a sector skills council.

Up-skilling workforces

She worked with employers in the East of England to support the up-skilling of their workforce, informing them of the qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks available and linking them to funding opportunities.

Lisa said: “I am really looking forward to working with businesses in Dacorum to address their skills needs.

Important issue

“For Dacorum to fulfil its economic potential, the importance of skills cannot be over-estimated.

“One of my first tasks will be to develop a skills strategy to meet the skills needs of employers.

Short survey

“To inform the strategy, I plan to carry out a short survey, consulting with Dacorum’s business community to identify what they feel their skills issues/challenges are, both now and in the future’.
