More than training
Through The Skills Service, you will be offered more than one-off, existing training courses. The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges values employers’ expertise and insight into industry. Through The Skills Service, businesses will have the opportunity to influence the skills agenda in your industry. As a collaborative organisation, we can connect intelligence and demand with opportunity and are managing a number of ESF funded skills projects.
We will continue to work with businesses to develop the right suite of training and projects to meet the skills gap or support talent pipeline and connect you with the right opportunities to help your business, and industry, flourish.
You don’t need to know exactly what training your employees’ need, we can work with you to understand your business areas and through a simple skills audit, identify where we can help.
The Skills Service is managed by the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges and funded by the European Social Fund.
