Business profile

Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) helps support small & medium-sized businesses to upskill their employees with training courses & qualifications to grow their business and boost the local economy.

We can work with you to develop a bespoke training programme relevant to your needs, and as the SSW programme is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), a wide range of training can be accessed at no cost to your business.

We can support you with qualifications in: IT, Leadership and Management, Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Health and Social care, Customer Service, Business Administration, and many more.

We also offer funded training for individuals at risk of redundancy or those who have been made redundant within the last 3 months through the Skills Support for Redundancy programme.

If you want to enhance your business performance, improve profitability or simply invest in your employees’ personal development, get in touch today.
