Our Good Growth Investment Plan identifies that investment will be made into Community Skills Hubs, established in existing buildings in order to strengthen the sustainability of the asset. This includes reimagining of community and education buildings. Aligned to programmes of digital skills, Multiply and wider training and skills opportunities. The buildings will offer local communities and their hinterland the opportunity to engage with and benefit from a range of skills and training opportunities. 

The Community Hubs should be designed and delivered in partnership with local skills providers, acting as ‘satellite’ buildings to existing campus(s) or provision. This will ensure that existing and new skills programmes, accredited and non-accredited qualifications, can be delivered in closer proximity to local communities, reducing the need to travel; whilst delivering activities at flexible times and locations to meet the needs of the community.

Community Skills Hubs should provide geographical coverage and proximity for the most deprived neighbourhoods as well as neighbourhoods who have previously been less likely to engage with skills training offers and should offer the following types of activity:

  • Enhanced awareness, access and pride in local skills provision
  • Deliver, in partnership with skills providers, high quality, industry relevant and complementary skills provision that supports the local community and socio-economic aspirations for the area; enabling businesses and residents to train, re-skill or upskill and help address current and future skills needs for local areas.
  • Also providing access to basic skills opportunities and wrap around support, for example digital, numeracy and literacy
  • Enable local business engagement and knowledge exchange in order to co-design and develop skills provision to meet local labour market needs
  • Identify cold spots for participation and undertake targeted activities to support engagement
  • Engage with local primary and secondary schools to highlight local skills priorities and provide business engagement and work experience opportunities
  • Access to Labour Market Information and intelligence within the local community and more widely
