A number of staff from Butlins in Skegness have undertaken mental health training through Boston College which has been funded by the Coastal Communities Fund.

 

 

Research Partner Appointed supporting the ‘Coastal Sustainability through Careers and Business Skills in Greater Lincolnshire’ Coastal Communities Fund  project

The research project will explore the seasonality of the Lincolnshire coast compared to other coastal destinations, identify three comparator destinations that have a similar visitor economy model but may be at a different stage of economic regeneration and share lessons learnt and best practice.  The project will understand the current investment levels on the coast and uptake by businesses in funded skills programmes to establish whether coastal areas are being left behind and then through primary research with businesses and residents start to understand the extent to which their aspirations are influenced by the seasonal nature of the economy.

Rationale:

  • Visitor Economy and its growth critical to the Greater Lincolnshire Economy
  • Coastal economy acutely seasonal
  • Mainstream Skills Funding often not aligned to seasonal economies
  • Low aspiration, skills gaps and shortages make skills a barrier to growth

Data:

  • Visitor Economy worth over £1.9bn pa to Greater Lincolnshire Economy
  • 1/3 of all nights of holiday accommodation in the EU sold in July / August
  • 26 to 37 principal seaside towns in England have an overall level of deprivation greater than average. Skegness (40% have no formal qualifications)

Outputs

  • 370 Learners
  • 75 Qualifications
  • 50 Businesses Engaged
  • 50 Jobs created / secured
  • 7 Apprenticeships
  • 8 Coastal Champions
