Free people skills training in Berkshire

Helping businesses recover from the impact of the pandemic

There can be no doubt that the pandemic has changed the way we work with people in an organisation or business, whether it be managing our staff, looking after their wellbeing or working with customers.

Funded by Skills Support for the Workforce from the European Social Fund, Skills for Progress are delighted to be able to offer people going through redundancy or who are already unemployed people in Berkshire packages of training and support to help get them back into work.

We have fully funded training and qualifications that cover:

  • Mentoring colleagues

Our free leadership training and mentored support is designed to upskill employees and managers to suit a post-pandemic workplace.
