Welcome to the Economic Development and Skills Training website!

Welcome to the Economic Development and Skills Training website. We aim to widen participation in learning, increase attainment, improve standards and help you meet the skills challenge, whether you are a brand new skill seeker or an executive looking to get ahead.

We have created opportunities for synergy between the various partners across the whole age spectrum of learning. We have links to representatives from the local authority, the local Learning and Skills Council (LSC), schools, Further Education (FE), Higher Education (HE) institutions, training providers, careers services and employers, as well as other voluntary and community organisations. Our recommended training providers are well placed to identify local learner, community and employer needs, and respond to them.
We also have connections with local learning action groups to add value to the crosscutting nature of activity. Working together and pooling resources can achieve much more than would otherwise have been possible when working in isolation.
