The call will support the D2N2 ambition for employed individuals to increase their skills levels and encourage progression in employment, for the current or future opportunities that may emerge. The additional support will support employees to gain higher skills, to drive growth in their organisation by improving productivity and innovation.
The call will lead to a project which will be flexible, responsive and aligned to the skills needs of our businesses and will support improvements in the labour market relevance of skills provision through active engagement with employers, particularly small to medium sized businesses and micro businesses. This will include developing skills to grow in current markets and gain enhanced business access to future and emerging markets in the post COVID-19 and Brexit landscape.
The additional support from this investment priority will enable the design of skills provision which will help individuals gain skills and qualifications relevant to the needs of the employer and labour market; particularly those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
