What is Skills Connect?

Skills Connect is an additional funding stream available through the L&D Skillnet open to members and non-members of the network. Skills Connect supports workers who have been displaced, who are not in employment or those in vulnerable roles or sectors.

Skills Connect offers 100% grants on a training and work placement programme, leading to a Learning & Development qualification as a career conversion mechanism. Places on the Skills Connect programme are limited and applications for funding will be assessed prior to funding being allocated.
