Skills Support for the Workforce in the Solent

Skills Support for the Workforce in the Solent, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) aims to upskill the employed workforce and enable business growth across the Solent area of the New Forest, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth & Havant.

The funding, available until July 2021, can also be used to support businesses and their staff with current and/or potential redundancies, providing training in other areas and supporting staff to seek other roles internally or externally. It can also be used to build upon current skills to enable further productivity to continue in their current positions.

There will be a key focus on the Local Enterprise Partnerships priority sectors, however this is not an exclusive list and flexibility towards businesses is at the heart of the project.

The focus, although not exclusive, is on STEM, Level 3 and above, linked to these sectors.

Training is delivered by local colleges and training providers and is bespoke to the needs of the business. Flexibility is key so training can be tailored to your business requirements. The training maybe on or off the business premises, consist of short bite size elements, or be part of a wider programme internally or externally, such as complimenting an Apprenticeship.

Rocky Moore, Partnership Manager for CSW, is available to guide you through everything you need to effectively access funding & business support. If you would like to have an informal chat or arrange an appointment to discuss your business requirements, contact Rocky on 07909 998 450 or email

This project is financed by the European Union through the European Social Fund.
