The Coventry Employment and Skills Plan: response to COVID-19

The plan is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and was written in partnership with JobCentre Plus, National Careers Service, Coventry College and Hereward College.

The plan sets out the scale of the economic challenge and the local impact this has for the residents of Coventry, with unemployment having more than doubled, 38,700 workers furloughed and significant numbers facing redundancy.  

Those in most need of support are identified, with priority groups including young people (18-24), those who are 50+, BAME communities, long-term unemployed, those with complex barriers, mental health needs and those with digital barriers.

Actions for each of these groups are set which will be achieved through making the most of our available resources, collectively working to lobby for additional funding and strong collaborative working across Coventry.
