About Skills for Growth
The Tees Valley Collaborative Skills Development Partnership (Skills for Growth) is a joint initiative with Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) and Teesside University, and is part-funded by the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England, to identify skills needs and access employee training to help business growth.
Businesses operating across the Tees Valley area will have access to funded support from a team of experts to help them identify any skills gaps their company has now or may have in the future. The Skills Development Officers will work with businesses to understand their training needs and take them through the training and support available locally, before helping them tap into specialist support to upskill their workforce.
*The project is receiving up to £1,868,162 of funding from the ESF as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England. The Department for Work and Pensions is the Managing Authority for the England ESF programme. Established by the European Union, the ESF helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support skills development, employment and job creation, social inclusion and local community regenerations.
