Skills Support for Redundancy (SSR) is an EU-funded initiative designed to support individuals affected by redundancy.
SSR provides free training courses for employees facing redundancy or to those that are redundant to help them gain new skills, rebuild their careers and even start their own business. We work with a number of other local organisations to ensure there is a wide range of support available which is relevant and timely.
If you have been affected by the liquidation of Carillion a special Task Force has been set up in the Black Country, which Calderdale College is supporting. More details to be found here
To be eligible for this support, you must:
If you live in York, North Yorkshire or East Riding and are at risk of, or under notice of redundancy, you may also be eligible. However your employer will have to apply for support on your behalf. You can ask your employer to look at our Redundancy Support for Employers page for more information.
