Skills Support for the Workforce is for Lancashire businesses and is a significant European Social Funded project that is being delivered by The Growth Company.

What support is available?

There are a range of accredited and non-accredited programmes to choose from at various levels. And best of all, some of the programmes only take a day or two to complete – meaning minimal impact on your business.

The Programmes:

  • Include coaching support to develop both vocational and soft skills
  • Can be used to develop basic skills in literacy and numeracy
  • Include specialist support for businesses going through restructures and where staff are at risk of redundancy
  • Can include employability skills to help individuals to find alternative employment

What are the benefits for businesses?

  • A higher-skilled workforce
  • Fewer skills gaps
  • Improved productivity
  • Better staff retention
  • Increased staff morale

How does it work?

The Growth Company offers:

  • An analysis of current skills gaps in your business and bespoke learning plans to meet these skills gaps
  • Delivery of skills programmes – flexible programmes can be delivered at your business, at one of their training centres or across different sites
