Free Skills review

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce can now provide a free Skills Review service to all businesses in the Greater Manchester area.

The review will cover any training that you feel will benefit your business. Some examples of the training that has been accessed through these reviews are:

•             Apprenticeships
•             NVQ Training and other workplace training
•             Management Training
•             Short IT or Business Related Courses
•             Various Industry Specific Training Courses

We are offering an impartial review service which will allow us to understand all your training requirements. From that initial meeting we will then put together a training plan that will show you what training is out there to suit your needs, who are the training providers delivering the training and whether or not that training is funded. We will then work with you to put you in touch with the correct people at your chosen training provider.
