Skills Support for the Workforce & Skills Support for Redundancy programmes

The Skills Support for the Workforce and Skills Support for Redundancy programmes are designed to deliver responsive workplace learning courses across the Humber region to meet individual, employer and regional economic needs.

By up-skilling the workforce, the Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) and Skills Support for Redundancy (SSR) programmes aim to reduce the risk of long-term unemployment and enhance employee skills and career prospects.

The programme is being delivered by HCUK Training (part of the Hull College Group) and a network of specialist training providers to engage with learners and key employment sectors as identified by the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The SSW/SSR programme is fully funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and co-financed by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) but employees must have been granted the time to participate and complete their agreed programme of learning. All training will be delivered either in the workplace or at a readily accessible nearby location.
