More than training

Through The Skills Service, you will be offered more than one-off, existing training courses. The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges values employers' expertise and insight into industry and when you enquire with The Skills Service, you will have the opportunity to influence the skills agenda in your industry. As a collaborative organisation, we can connect intelligence and demand with opportunity.

Once we are working with you, you will be first to hear from WYCC with training and project opportunities. We will work with our employers to develop the right suite of training and projects to meet the skills gap or support talent pipeline and connect you with the right opportunities to help your business, and industry, flourish.

You don't need to know exactly what training your employees' need, we can work with you to understand your business areas and through a simple skills audit, identify where we can help.

Developing our offer - commissions for training providers

As we work with more businesses, we will commission training that meets the needs of the employers in the Leeds City Region more closely. The latest opportunities to tender will always be available on the In-Tend website, and, as a training provider you must register to receive the latest notifications and see full details of the opportunities. The Skills Catalogue will be updated as new provision is commissioned.
