Workplace Learning


Businesses had the opportunity to access fully funded training, thanks to the £43 million Workplace Learning programme.
Workplace Learning

Calderdale College as Accountable Body on behalf of West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges were successful in their bid to deliver the European Social Fund (ESF) Workplace Learning contract. The training provided through this innovative project was available throughout the North of England and the Midlands, making the Consortium the largest provider of European Social Funded training, managing over 50% of provision within the UK.

The programme was an exciting and innovative way to raise the levels of achievement in the workplace enabling individuals to improve their employment prospects and undertake further education. The programme, co-financed by the Skills Funding Agency, supported employed individuals aged 19+ with low skills and more specifically those who are most vulnerable to future unemployment and those who have barriers to achieving sustained employment.

The programme delivery included:

  • robust initial assessment induction including IAG
  • delivery of accredited qualifications at Level 1, 2 & 3
  • Skills for Life
  • Personal Advancement Advisors and In-Work Ambassadors to support progression and beyond

Who could access funded training?

  • Employed individuals aged 19+
  • Employees with low skills
  • 19-24 year olds within SMEs
  • Focus on those most vulnerable to future unemployment
