Skills Training UK is working with a supply chain of delivery partners to identify and work with SMEs to upskill staff and improve business productivity. The project will also improve the career prospects of employees that receive training through individual outcomes such as pay rises, increased hours and access to better job opportunities in the future. The project is also identifying businesses with employees at risk of, or individuals who have recently gone through redundancy, and providing training to up-skill or re-skill those individuals to increase their employability and help to keep them in employment. The programme is tailored to match individual needs and is planned to enable in-work progression as well as provide guidance towards further education, apprenticeships and, where appropriate, employment.
