Workforce for the Future
Workforce for the Future is a free service that will help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to identify and address their skills needs, by upskilling and retraining employees, in areas such as digital, or support them to source and bring in new staff, including apprentices or work placements to drive their business forwards.
We are offering a full catalogue of support; whether you want to access: bespoke training, apprenticeships, work placements, traineeships or student projects; our team can help you.
By registering interest with Weston College you will not only benefit from our support, but also have an opportunity to access free support from a range of West of England project partners including the WECA (West of England Combined Authority) Growth Hub.
