For Employers:

If you are facing an organisational restructure or the prospect of making hard decisions about employee redundancy, there is funded support available to you. The Skills Support for Redundancy (SSR) programme will ensure your employees get access to bespoke training and careers guidance, and support them to find suitable employment.  

What we offer:

We offer online and distance training and advice in a wide range of vocational and sector specific areas in order to help secure employment in your existing business or to help you change career:

  • Career progression training: developing higher level skills to take you to the next step in your career, such as leadership and management or supervisory skills training 
  • Support with securing a new job: to give you the best chance of securing a new role, we can build on your transferable skills and support where required with CV writing, online job searching, completing applications and interview techniques, or signpost you to local services that will be able to offer additional support
  • Training could also include support with English, maths and digital literacy as required to help individuals thrive in new workplaces or roles.
