Skills for Employment


We deliver the work experience placements and training (both accredited and non-accredited courses) as part of the wider Growth Company Skills for Employment offer.  We are working in the Oldham, Rochdale and Bolton areas of Greater Manchester.  Opportunites include training in areas such as personal development, horticulture, construction and employability skills.

The programme is open to people who are aged 19+ (or 18+ if in receipt of out of work benefits), and are unemployed (or inactive and not in full time education).

The Growth Company is the lead contractor for Greater Manchester’s Skills for Employment pilot.  Commissioned by the Skills Funding Agency in partnership with Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership, the contract is part-funded by the European Social Fund.
