Skills for Growth
Serco is working with Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to deliver the 'Skills for Growth' project to help employees in businesses across Somerset and Devon acquire vital skills to aid business growth.
Heart of the South West LEP has identified priority areas in which to improve the skill level of the region’s workforce. These include the marine sector (particularly marine engineering), biosciences and health,
· advanced engineering
· business and professional services
· environmental services/technologies
The funding is being used to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the county with bite-sized training to address these essential workforce skills and identify other training development areas such as specialist technical skills.
