Influence local skills delivery

We want Northamptonshire businesses to shape future skills training delivery.

The UK Commission for Employment and Skills has identified that businesses are trying to fill general skills gaps in important areas such as maths and English, communications, social skills and problem solving. We can help local organisations address these issues. But we are also keen to challenge businesses to tell us what else they need in terms of training or upskilling their workforce.
