Learning and Skills


Learning and Skills

Learning and Skills helps develop the skills of young people and adults who are either in work to support progression, out of work and need to retrain or get into work or qualification delivery which is fundamental to improving life chances, employability, progression, higher skills and opportunity. We work with a wide range of employers to support them fill their skills gaps through retraining their staff.

What do we deliver?

We deliver Learning and Skills through Ixion, developing and providing a wide range of advanced learner loans, apprenticeships and traineeships. In November 2017 Ofsted rated Ixion as Grade 1 Outstanding. Learning and Skills deliver training in the key sectors of health and social care; construction; education and training; leadership and management; digital and IT; and functional skills. We offer training from entry-level to degree level, tailor-made to help all learners, regardless of age, learn new skills across a range of sectors.

We also deliver the National Careers Service, supporting adults to improve their employment prospects, in London, the West Midlands and South Yorkshire.

How does our work help others?

We worked with more than 14,000 learners each year, providing them with higher skills levels leading to more rewarding work, higher pay, more opportunities for progression and increased confidence. Our learner outcomes average 90% success across our skills provision and last year for every £1 invested in learning and skills we re-invested £1.87.
