Introducing Oxfordshire Skills for Business - Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards sponsor

We are delighted to introduce Oxfordshire Skills for Business as a sponsor of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021.

Part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF), OxLEP’s Skills for Business programme offers Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) up to 12 hours of training and development consultancy, worth the equivalent of £1800, free of charge. The support could range from advice on apprenticeships, the Kickstart Scheme, recruitment, upskilling, work placements, developing processes and documentation.

Through this practical support, SMEs will receive a Skills Needs Assessment (SNA) to identify skills gaps, and a bespoke training and development plan to highlight options and opportunities. SMEs will also receive ongoing advice, recommendations and guidance through 1:1 consultancy sessions.

Apprenticeships play a key part in staff development and business growth for SMEs and so Oxfordshire Skills for Business is delighted to recognise and celebrate them as a sponsor of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021.

If you would like to find out more about the Skills for Business programme and the support it can provide for your business, contact the team on 01865 897189 or email Skills4Business@oxfordshirelep.com or visit the OxLEP website at www.oxfordshirelep.com/sfb
