The Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) Programme extended to enable SME businesses in Dorset to continue to upskill and develop their staff at no cost.

Locomotivation’s contract with SERCO, who are managing the Skills Support for the Workforce contract across Dorset, funded by the European Social Fund, has been extended from 31st July 2018 to 31st March 2019.

This will allow Locomotivation to continue to offer recognised accredited qualifications such as full Diplomas, Certificates and Awards in Hospitality, Sport & Leisure, Business Admin, Sales, Customer Service and Team Leading to any SME busineses or volunteers within Dorset.

Locomotivation can also create bespoke training programmes based around the specific needs of businesses. These can take the form of workshops, online and offline courses or individual qualification units.
