Skills and Training Hub – Springboard into Employment

Helping to prepare residents for jobs in strong local economic sectors is a key aspect of achieving our vision for change and improvement. Working with a range of partners, Bishop Auckland College is looking to lead a new service for the town, ensuring that local people have the skills needed to access job opportunities and working with local businesses to help improve the skills of their workers. Whilst there are clear opportunities for new jobs to be created supporting the visitor economy, there are other sectors also providing jobs growth.  Improved digital skills, targeted training and vacancy matching will all help to ensure that local residents are best placed to benefit from new job opportunities.
