Skills Support for the Workforce is a major service funded by the European Social Fund, providing free training and skills planning support to eligible businesses based in the Black Country and Leicester and Leicestershire. Support available includes a comprehensive training needs analysis to identify your current and future skills gaps; a bespoke training plan designed around your business’s specific skills gaps and growth plans; and access to free training courses delivered by locally based, professional training providers. Training can be delivered at a time and place to suit your commercial needs and minimise the impact on staffing capacity. This service is available until funding runs out or July 2018, whichever is soonest. To see if you’re eligible to take part or to apply, visit
