Skills forms part of the Growth Hub offer, investing in skills and expertise to drive business growth. We work with employers to identify how new skills can help to grow their business, and our team of Advisors can connect employers to high-quality training providers to meet those needs.

See our list of specialist programmes below or contact us for support in assessing your business needs and finding the right product for you.

Skills Bank

Skills Bank is a programme developed by the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership which matches private sector investment in skills training with public funding to help businesses invest in their workforce and improve their productivity. Funding is available to businesses that make a strong case for how the investment will deliver growth.

To help businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Skills Bank team have set up two new strands of its programme for those companies working through the crisis, or businesses directly helping with the government’s Covid-19 strategy.
