Putting employers at the heart of the vocational education system in the Sheffield City Region is central to the work of the highly innovative Sheffield City Region Skills Bank.

The Skills Bank helps employers invest in skills and expertise to drive growth. Advisors work with businesses to identify the skills needed, to apply where appropriate for funding, and to connect with high quality training providers.

What sets the Skills Bank apart is its ability to do a “deal” with a business; with public money being invested only where the business co-invests in workforce training that contributes to productivity and employment growth.

The project is part of the Growth Hub offer to businesses across the city region and includes a contribution from European funding, private sector contributions and resources ring-fenced from the Government’s Adult Education Budget as agreed in the Sheffield City Region Growth Deal.
