Oxfordshire Skills Network

ox skills networkA new association for local organisations delivering skills training

Since the demise of Thames Valley Regional Network (TVRN), many locally based colleges and providers have missed out on the benefits of a local association. The LEP have suggested that we form an association, similar to the previous TVRN. A newly formed partnership association will create a platform to communicate and disseminate key skills information in the region i.e. bidding opportunities that are available and how to access them.  The association will also bring providers together to discuss current issues and provide valuable network links within the industry.

In summary, the purpose of a regional association:

  • Meet and interact with the LEP/ESFA and other funders
  • Seminars from OFSTED and other key organisations
  • Expert support through the reforms of apprenticeships
  • Sharing of good practice within the sector
  • Networking and a forum for partnership working and potential bidding


  • Independent providers and colleges
  • Employer providers
  • Other skills and employment stakeholders
  • Europe
  • Matrix
  • Skills
  • Student Finance
  • Apprenticeships
  • City Guild
  • Ilm
