Skills North East was the Regional Employment and Skills Partnership to January 2011. It worked through its partners to identify employment and skills needs in the North East and ensure action was taken to address them. 

As a result of the closure of the Regional Development Agency for North East England - One North East - the site will only be updated to June 2011.  During 2011, the site will be used as a dissemination tool to ensure the transfer of knowledge to stakeholders and support the transition to new and emerging skills and employability structures and arrangements.
