D2N2 LEP seek opinions of employers on skills gap and training needs

Posted 07.07.2020

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (D2N2), working with Skills Support for the Workforce, is seeking the views of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire employers.

As part of ongoing efforts to increase skill levels in our region’s businesses so they can grow and become more productive, D2N2 is seeking to understand what training provision would benefit the region’s businesses, both in current circumstances and under more normal business conditions.

D2N2 is keen to hear from employers of all sizes (including sole traders) and from all sectors.  Those interested in giving their view should complete the D2N2 Employer Skills Survey before the deadline of 31st July 2020.

Skills Support for the Workforce is a programme developed to upskill employees within small and medium-sized businesses, delivered by Serco through a network of expert training providers.  The programme will provide recognised accredited qualifications and bespoke training courses to enhance employees’ skills, increase the competitiveness of businesses, and boost the local economy.  As a tailored programme of support, courses are bespoke to the training needs of the individual business at no cost.  Many of these courses are now available virtually to facilitate distance learning and home workers.  The programme is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
