Asset Skills wants to hear from employers about the types of skills training they think could be improved with money from a new £250 million fund unveiled by the government.
The Employer Ownership Pilot will allow businesses the power to design, develop and purchase the vocational training they need.
It will route public investment directly to employers, enabling them to invest in the training they need.
Potential projects could include:
• Developing and shaping apprenticeship frameworks to meet industry needs
• Forming employer guilds
• Gaining support for specific areas of training provision.
But there are other ideas that may gain support from the fund.
For this reason, Asset Skills is calling on employers and groups of employers in facilities management, housing, property, planning, cleaning and parking about how they think this investment could work for them.
Contact Asset Skills on 0845 678 2 888 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Employer Ownership Pilot is available in England only. To access the prospectus, visit http://www.ukces.org.uk/employerownership.
