Skills Support for the Workforce

Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW)

The aim of the Skills Support for the Workforce programme is to help SME’s meet their growth objectives, by upskilling their employees.

It’s no secret that effective training develops the vital skills needed to keep employees motivated, productive and committed and that a good (or bad) manager affects employee performance, satisfaction, productivity, efficiency, turnover and the overall health of any organisation.

Research shows that employers who provide their staff with an opportunity to learn and develop, are rewarded with happier, motivated, loyal and engaged employees.

If you are looking to grow your business and increase profitability, it goes without saying that investing in training, financially or with your time, is a smart move.

Eligibility Criteria: This programme is available to all Greater Manchester and Lancashire based SME businesses who; employ less than 250 employees and turnover less than £36m

To date we have worked with over 350 local businesses and taken almost 650 learners through our ILM Accredited blended learning programmes, receiving fantastic feedback and producing some outstanding results.
