Labour Market Partnership

In February 2021, the Labour Market Partnership (LMP) was established through funding from the Department of the Communities (DfC) in the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough (ABC) Council area.

The ABC Labour Market Partnership (ABC LMP) undertook a strategic assessment of employability outcomes and local labour market conditions within the region to inform a locally focused Action Plan.

At the heart of the ABC LMP is the need to ensure that a quality skills provision is driven by demand for skills in the economy, leading to reduced unemployment. The aim is for residents in our borough to have the skills, information, support, and opportunities to succeed in the labour market so they can make informed choices, access effective pathways, and reach their full potential.

Co-designed with a range of stakeholders, the ABC LMP aims to support the local economy with a resilient, agile, and flexible workforce.

ABC LMP Action Plan 2022-23

The ABC LMP Action Plan 2022-23 identifies four thematic areas

  • Unemployed young people
  • Recently unemployed
  • Economically inactive
  • Furthest from the labour market.

You can access full details below.

The ABC LMP is also aligned to our Recovery and Growth Framework, developed to provide options as a pathway to aid inclusive and sustainable economic recovery in response to the pandemic.
