The Skills Support for the Workforce Programme is a free service, created to help small to medium-sized employers turn their business growth plans into reality by upskilling their existing workforce.
We work with employers to identify their skills gaps and recommend bespoke training plans which will give their workforce the skills they need to grow the business. And the best bit – we even deliver the training for free.

We’ve provided 2800 employers and 9300 individuals with free training. Some of these individuals have gone on to receive promotions at work and 86% of employers on the current programme are expecting to see increased turnover.
Are you an employer undergoing restructuring or business closure with employees at risk of redundancy (or where formal consultation has commenced) with business premises in York, North Yorkshire, East Riding or Tees Valley region?
Are you an individual who has recently been made redundant (within the last three months) and residing within the York, North Yorkshire, East Riding or Tees Valley region?
If so, you may be eligible for free support through European Social Funding to support you (as an employer) or an individual to brush up on existing skills or re-skill in a new area to progress or gain employment.
