Skills for Employment is a £2.4 million programme which helps businesses tackle skills shortages and enables young people to become work-ready. Since 2015, more than £1 million has been awarded in grants to businesses, colleges and schools to achieve this.

More than 300 businesses have benefited so far and more than 20,000 careers and employability activities have been delivered so far.
