Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) gather information on the skills and training needs of D2N2 SMEs

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), working with Skills Support for the Workforce, is seeking the views of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire employers on skills and training.  

SSW appreciate that this is a difficult time for many organisations but are keen to understand what funded training provision might benefit your organisation in better times and also what needs may have arisen through the impacts of recent events. They are keen to hear from employers of all sizes (including sole traders) and from all sectors.

Please share your views by completing a short survey (10-15 minutes) available at

The deadline is 30th September 2020.

For each completed survey, you will have an opportunity to enter a prize draw to win a £100 experience day gift voucher that you can spend on venues in the region. 

In addition to this, a 50p donation for each completed survey response (for the first 200 responses) will be made to the Good Things Foundation ( registered charity number 1165209) which supports digitally and socially excluded people to improve their lives through digital. Those completing the survey can opt to receive a copy of the findings once published.
