FREE Skills Planning Service for Employers across the Leeds City Region

The Business Engagement Team at Leeds College of Building are offering a FREE skills planning service as part of their on-going support to construction and built environment employers operating across the Leeds City Region.

What is a skills plan and how it can help you as an employer?

A skills plan can help a business to look at their current and future workforce development, training and skills needs. Our skilled and experienced advisors can help you to look at your current business status and any future/growth plans you may have in mind, including investment in your staff. Training can help to boost your team’s productivity, motivation and efficiency in the workplace. 

94% of employees are likely to stay with a business if the employer invests in their career development
