The Skills Service

The Skills Service is a global award-winning team, providing a brokerage role between businesses, education and training providers in Peterborough, Fenland, Rutland, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, East Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, South Kesteven and South Holland. 

Funded by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, The Skills Service brings young people into contact with local employers to help businesses bridge their skills gaps whilst inspiring young people’s careers choices through work-related learning activities such as careers fairs, enterprise challenges, employer mentoring and work experience placements.

The Skills Service aims to develop the employability skills of the future workforce, co-ordinating activities between businesses and schools, and other organisations with access to young people. Young people need inspiration as well as information and guidance, which is best achieved through effective engagement with employers.

The Skills Service also works with businesses to help with staff training plans, connecting businesses with skills experts locally, and providing workshops on the benefits of a highly skilled team and alternative recruitment methods such as apprenticeships.
