How we can help employers

Learning & Skills can access funding to support your budget through its Employer Responsive contracts with the Government such as:-

  • Apprenticeships
  • European Social Funds (ESF)
  • The Adult Skills Budget (ASB)

This means real support for business workforce development with accredited qualifications and bite sized / bespoke programmes to bridge skills gaps, develop newly appointed staff and professionalisation of your existing workforce backed by Government funding where appropriate.

Our partnership can add real value to your workforce development programmes allowing you to target your resources effectively, achieve accredited qualifications in your workplace, help address any skill shortages and develop key staff ensuring an adaptable work force to meet your business objectives.
