Skills for Employment

Skills for Employment helps businesses tackle skills shortages and enables young people to become work-ready. Since 2015, more than £2 million has been awarded in grants to businesses, colleges and schools to achieve this.

More than 600 businesses have taken part so far and more than 30,000 careers and employability activities have been delivered so far.

Following the success and impact of the programme, the Council has made an additional £600,000 available for the period 2018-20. To find out how you can get involved, please call 01926 418027 or e-mail
