Help into training and employment

We know Covid-19 has had an impact on secure employment in our local communities and we’re here to help. As well as employability, functional skills and accredited courses we have dedicated funding through the Way2Work initiative, to support residents in Nottinghamshire, Nottingham, Derby an Derbyshire into training and employment.

Find out more about 'How to start your business - a short course for women' starting on Wednesday 6 January 2021.
