SERIO support the Northern Devon Employment & Skills Board to research skills in North Devon and Torridge


SERIO were commissioned by the Northern Devon Employment & Skills Board to provide the skills and expertise required to enable them to survey businesses in North Devon and Torridge.

The survey aimed to provide a robust understanding of the employment and skills issues facing Northern Devon businesses.  The research was guided by a steering group, which included SERIO and representatives from local organisations such as North Devon+ (the economic delivery agency), the Federation of Small Businesses and North Devon Manufacturing Association.  The survey itself was designed collaboratively via the steering group and the fieldwork itself carried out by North Devon+.  SERIO are currently analysing the survey responses and will be presenting the findings to local organisations and agencies in November 2013.
