The Braintree District Education and Skills Board

We set up the The Braintree District Education and Skills Board (BDESB) in 2017 to provide a localised collective voice for:

  • employers
  • schools
  • education providers
  • stakeholders

Through collaborative working , BDESB delivers funded projects that promote skills development and careers in key growth sectors to meet employers’ current and future demands.

Membership of BDESB is open to employers and stakeholders operating in our district from following growth sectors:

  • advanced manufacturing and engineering
  • construction
  • creative and digital
  • health and care
  • logistics

We also welcome representatives from schools and education providers.

You can contact our Economic Development team if you:

  • want to find out more about the board and its work
