News: Skills Access Hub partners meet at the City Hub to discuss plans to continue supporting local businesses

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

This week we welcomed our Skills Access Hub partners to the new City Hub to discuss our future plans to support local SME businesses through the project. The project is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) to help small and medium-sized businesses identify their skills needs and provide tailored solutions to develop their workforce through training, recruitment, apprenticeships, and placements.

Our dedicated team of advisors are based across six delivery partners. They work with local businesses on a one-to-one basis to identify skills gaps, develop training action plans and help businesses to motivate, retain and develop their workforce through:

  • Training needs analysis
  • Tailored action planning
  • Impartial advice to access training opportunities
  • Information on apprenticeships, traineeships and placements
  • Guidance on accessing funding for training
  • Opportunities to contribute to local curriculum design

Businesses in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby, Derbyshire area are eligible for support from the scheme if they can meet the following criteria:

  • Less than 250 employees
  • Annual turnover under EUR 50 million or;
  • Annual balance sheet less than EUR 43 million
  • No more than 25% of the organisation is owned by an organisation that in itself is not an SME
