The Forum of Private Business (FPB) said that with private sector organisations clamouring to form new Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), new bodies should focus on providing training as well as guidance on the support that businesses need.
Phil Orford, chief executive of the FPB, said that services provided by bidding authorities should include localised business support, supplier matching and inward investment, export preparations, regional infrastructure investment and skills and training information and promotion.
"Independence is key when it comes to delivering information, advice and guidance about the help that is already easily available to business owners through dedicated support organisations in the private sector," he explained.
A recent report by Hays Senior Finance showed that, while multimillions of pounds are being spent on staff training across the UK, nearly one in seven organisations admit that they have no measurements in place to assess the impact of their programmes.
