Specialist support from Skills West

Specialist support from Skills West to attract, train and retain the right people

Your people are key to productivity and business growth. Here in the West of England our low unemployment rate often means businesses struggle to attract new employees or find employees with the right skills. The skills advisers at Business West will help you to identify and start to think about how to plan for skills gaps in your business. Their advisers will walk you through what support is available to business and if relevant connect you with local and national training providers to ensure you get access to relevant, quality training.

Whether you’re looking to take on an apprentice, upskill existing staff, or attract new staff with the right skills and knowledge, they can signpost you to organisations and funding which most businesses don’t even know exist. 

Their impartial business skills support provides:

  • advice on new apprenticeship standards and funding, covering 90 per cent of training costs
  • help to identify your skills and training needs
  • advice on the best training solutions for your business
  • access to relevant training providers
  • guidance on how to attract and retain the best people
  • advice on how to raise the profile of your employment opportunities 
  • guidance on how to engage with education and young people

This fully funded service is exclusive to businesses based in the West of England and is only available for a limited time.

The service is a partnership with the Western Training Provider Network and is funded by the European Social Fund, Education and Skills Funding Agency and commissioned by the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership.
