Skills Support for the Workforce

This project is delivered by Dimensions Training Solutions.

Skills Support for the Workforce is funded under ESF priority 2.1 to enhance equal access to lifelong learning. The project aims to address skills shortages and gaps in the Marches particularly in priority employment and high growth sectors. The project supports small and medium sized businesses through a training needs analysis and delivery of fully funded training to develop the skills of the workforce, improve productivity and help employers to meet their business goals.

The project also supports people affected by redundancy to update their skills or retrain to help secure employment in new sectors.

Training can include short courses, units of training leading to a level 2 qualification and units of accredited training at level 3 and 4.

The project is funded by ESF and co-financed by the Education and Skills Funding Agency

During the coronavirus crisis training has moved to being fully delivered online and now includes the following new courses:

  • Protect your workforce from Covid-19
