In a groundbreaking move, Bradford Council has unveiled the eagerly awaited Skills for Work website, offering a comprehensive array of courses to enhance the skills of residents in the Bradford District. Timed perfectly to align with National Apprenticeship Week, this launch marks a significant milestone as the training provider establishes its online presence for the first time.
Whether individuals are embarking on a new chapter, eyeing career progression, or exploring fresh training avenues, the website stands as a beacon of opportunity. It showcases an extensive range of part-time courses for adults and apprenticeships tailored to meet the demands of the contemporary workplace. From foundational skills in English and maths to immersive digital workshops and business administration courses, the platform caters to diverse aspirations.
Operating under the umbrella of Bradford Council, Skills for Work boasts an impressive track record in apprenticeships, boasting a remarkable 100% first-time pass rate and nearly 70% distinctions in units during the 2022/23 academic year.
Councillor Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s Portfolio Holder for Education, Employment and Skills, shares their enthusiasm: “We’re thrilled to launch the Skills for Work website, a great place to find courses designed to empower Bradford residents and fuel our local economy.
“The Council is committed to improving the life chances and economic well-being of all residents across the District through training and learning that leads to good quality employment. This new website from Skills for Work supports this commitment and will showcase the excellent provision of courses they offer.
“Ideally timed to launch during National Apprenticeship Week, I’m sure that the website will help residents make decisions about their future education and training”.
People can also view the Success Stories section, where current and past learners talk about their journeys, what they think about their course and what benefits they have seen from taking part. One learner, Cain Lewis, says “I have a fantastic tutor from the Skills for Work team who tailored the learning and helped me overcome my initial struggles. Witnessing my portfolio grow with evidence from my work in Bradford was a significant milestone, a testament to the practical value of the apprenticeship scheme. “
The website also features testimonials from employers who have benefitted from Skills for Work in training their apprentices.
This exciting announcement comes on the heels of Skills for Work’s relocation to Little Germany, adding another layer of anticipation to this dynamic period for the organization.
