West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges

The Skills Service matches employers who identify skills gaps or training needs with the right training programmes from a quality training provider.

As part of the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges, The Skills Service advisors can explore opportunities with businesses spanning the full offer of training products managed by WYCC and their partner training providers.

The new service is due to launch in June 2018.

How does it work?
  1. Employer/business identifies a training need
  2. Employer contacts The Skills Service with initial enquiry
  3. Skills Service allocates the employer a specialist account manager
  4. Account manager talks to the employer about business and employee skills
  5. Account manager provides you with training options and/or project opportunities
  6. Employer chooses which option is best suited to the business
  7. Account manager sets up the training or project on employer’s behalf

Employers can sign up to Skills Service membership. As a member, you would be first to hear from WYCC with special offers, training and project opportunities. We work with our member employers to develop the right suite of training and projects to meet the skills gap or support pipeline talent.

Workplace progression and succession planning

This revitalised service should make in-work skills training accessible to a wider population of the workforce in the region, and contribute to business growth and personal progression for more people.
