SKILLS SUPPORT FOR THE WORKFORCE

Fully funded training courses to help your business grow

Employees will benefit from a wide variety of training courses like leadership and management, technical skills training and higher level skills relevant to your business. Completing the training can help your employees continue to higher level qualifications, take on more responsibility and progress in their careers.

Skills Support for the Workforce is a programme developed to up skills employees within small and medium-sized businesses in Dorset. The programme provides recognised accredited qualifications and bespoke training courses to enhance your employee’s skills, and increase the competitiveness of your business and boost the local economy. We deliver this programme on behalf of Serco.

We can work with you to develop a bespoke training programme relevant to your business needs, and because this programme is co-funded by The European Social Fund (ESF) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) you can support your workforce at no extra cost to you or your business.
