In response to the needs of local businesses, our partner City College Plymouth, have created four new courses to support small to medium sized business in Plymouth to grow.  Courses are fully funded by the European Social Fund.  There are so many benefits of upskilling, from boosting productivity to future-proofing your business.  The SMART SKILLS programme closes in Autumn 2023, which means this is the last opportunity for businesses in Plymouth to access the training at no-cost.
