SMEs can get in touch using: firstname.lastname@example.org and book to speak with a Skills Access Hub Adviser. During the meeting, Advisers will undertake a skills assessment to identify any skill gaps and training needs. The Advisers will then work with you to develop a bespoke Skills Action Plan and connect you to the chosen training or education provider, so you can agree a training and development project tailored to your needs. Our Advisers will be on-hand for the duration of the agreed project, to ensure support is available throughout.
