SMART SKILLS supports businesses in Devon to identify skills gaps in their existing workforce and provides the skills training they need to boost productivity, drive growth, improve staff retention, and build skills for the future.

SMART SKILLS is delivered through our quality SMART Partners across Devon; City College Plymouth, South Devon College, Petroc, The Focus Training Group, University of Exeter, Learn Devon and On Course South West.

The skills training is funded by the European Social Fund which means there is no cost to the employer; the project makes upskilling the workforce accessible to businesses who have little to no training budget.  Training opportunities include short courses through to full qualifications. The most in demand courses include Digital Marketing, CMI Project Management, Coaching & Mentoring, and Leadership & Management.
