Shared Prosperity Fund

People and Skills

The Cheshire West and Chester UKSPF Investment Plan sets out the priorities for People and Skills to be delivered in year 3 of the programme (2024-25). These included:

  • Providing support to those residents facing barriers to employment and training to achieve their potential (E33/E34)
  • Raising aspirations of young people through learning and volunteering opportunities to support their future careers (E35)
  • Delivering in-work skills and training to support staff recruitment, retention and progression, and improve business productivity and growth (E37)

As this is a one-year programme, the Council is aiming to use this funding to complement existing provision already available to residents and businesses such as skills bootcamps, employment support offers (available through Department for Work and Pensions, the Council and other partners) and local further and higher education provision.

We will be looking to deliver the programme through our in-house skills and employment team and a range of external providers. A successful list of projects will be published by the end of May 2024
