Skills Support for the Workforce

Free training programmes for Berkshire and Oxfordshire’s workforce.

Activate Learning has been successful in securing funding to support the workforce, including those at risk of redundancy, across Oxfordshire and Berkshire. The projects are jointly funded by the European Social Fund and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

About the programmes 

Skills Support in the Workforce (SSW) will deliver bespoke training programmes within the workforce. Organisations will be able to work with Activate Learning to identify specific learning needs within their workforce. Course delivery will take place onsite at the organisation, within contracted work hours, so no travel or out-of-work hours are required.  

Courses are available to both up-skill and provide new areas of development for the workforce. Participants who join the programme will: 

  • Receive an individual learning plan outlining their expected journey on the programme and identifying where there are skills gaps 
  • Be aided and coached to progress within their organisation or continue to study on higher levels of training  

In addition, SSW will also aid organisations that may need to make redundancies. In this case, vocational courses are available to up-skill workers ready for the labour market.
