By up-skilling the workforce, the Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) programme aims to reduce the risk of long-term unemployment and enhance employee skills and career prospects.

The SSW programme is fully funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and co-financed by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) but employees must have been granted the time to participate and complete their agreed programme of learning. All training will be delivered either in the workplace or at a readily accessible nearby location. You qualify as a business, an employee or are self employed if;

  • You are a business and have employees
  • Your are an employee of a business in the sector of training
  • You are self employed in the sector of training

SSW could potentially provide £2000 of courses per employee or per self employed person, to progress through, and bring more value to your business. Are you an employee or a business owner and want to up-skill?
