Current Initiatives
The Skills Service

The Skills Service responds to local business needs to fill skills gaps and develop employability skills in young people, they co-ordinate activities between businesses and schools, and other organisations with access to young people. Young people need inspiration as well as information and guidance, which is best achieved through effective engagement with employers.

The Skills Service also work with businesses to help with staff training plans, connecting businesses with skills experts locally and providing workshops on the benefits of a highly skilled team and alternative recruitment methods such as apprenticeships.

Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a meeting with a member of the team to discuss your skills needs and how the skills service can help you to address these through the activities that we organise in schools. This also helps them to ensure that these activities are tailored to local business needs.
