How does the Skills Service work?

It’s really easy to access support from the Skills Service.

First of all you’ll need to fill in the enquiry form telling them a bit about your business and your needs.

You will then be allocated an experienced Skills Advisor who will discuss your needs and help identify the right solution for you. You can then make a choice about which training is best suited to your business.

You don't need to know exactly what training your employees' need, we can work with you to understand your business areas and through a simple skills audit, identify where we can help.

For an example of the courses currently available you can search the current courses available in the Skills Catalogue*

You can also get in touch with the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges to be part of future developments for your sector

*Courses from the Skills Catalogue will be considered for WYCC European Social Fund funding if participants are 18+, in employment, have the right to work in the UK. Businesses must operate within the Leeds City Region. Funding of up to 40% may be available. Requests for training that is not listed in the Skills Catalogue will also be considered for funding. Conditions and eligibility will be discussed with your Skills Advisor following your enquiry.
