Our free Skills Connect course is just what you need to gain new skills suitable for many industries.

Skills Connect has officially landed in West Yorkshire and is here to prepare you for the next business opportunity that comes your way.

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), will offer you free courses for adults to gain skills for job roles in the digital, construction, health care, social and environmental sectors.

We know that the pandemic has caused uncertainty in many people’s lives, especially when considering employment and what the future may hold. The pandemic may have given you the impetus to re-evaluate your career and consider new ventures in other industries.

With the new year approaching, it’s time to think about and make those resolutions, so why not make “promoting your career” your business this year.

Tracey Braben, Mayor of West Yorkshire said: “The free Skills Connect course is just what you need to gain new skills suitable for many industries and feel confident and ready to apply for exciting new careers, advance your career or start your career journey after leaving education.

“We aim to support and fund more than 4,000 adults across West Yorkshire to complete a course and acquire the right skills to succeed in local job vacancies, which in turn will help rebuild our local economy.”

All courses are free, fully funded by the West Yorkshire Joint Commission and designed by local employers to match local skills needs and job vacancies. Anyone over the age of 19 who lives in West Yorkshire can register for a course.

Opportunities to learn directly from industry and business professionals through guaranteed post-training interviews will be available on some courses, connecting you directly to current vacancies.

The first available courses will enhance your digital skills to help you take on roles in cyber security, digital marketing, data analytics and many more. Starting in the new year, there will be many other courses available in health and social care, construction and green jobs.
