Skills Bank is an innovative skills investment programme. Designed to support growth within businesses through investment in training, it provides flexible funding to deliver bespoke, tailored training. Driven by employer-need, approved ‘deals’ allow a business to decide who, how and where training is delivered.

Through our Growth Hub which offers specialist business support we have a team of Skills Advisors who can work with businesses to understand how an investment in training can support plans for growth, how to apply (where appropriate) for funding, and to connect with high quality training providers.

Calderdale College have been appointed to manage the project on behalf of Sheffield City Region and will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the project including the management of a wide range of quality training providers who will offer training and support which is responsive to employer’s needs.

Provider Capacity Development Fund – open to 28th February 2020

To support our provider base to meet the training needs of local businesses we have launched our ‘Provider Capacity Development Fund’. This fund is available for local skills/training providers to access if they can demonstrate their own and employer growth through the upskilling of their own staff.  Whether you are already a training supplier for the Skills Bank, or are considering getting involved in the Skills Bank programme, details of the scheme can be found here and information on how to apply can be found here.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Provider Capacity Development Fund we are hosting an information workshop on Thursday 30th January 2020 for potential applicants.
