'Skills for Growth'

Helping employers to identify the skills needed for change and growth

Connect Three has launched a new four-year partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) designed to propel small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across the country from recovery into growth.

Connect Three is one of four partners selected to deliver the Skills for Growth programme, which offers free support to SMEs helping them adapt to a new economic environment brought about by the pandemic. With a focus on innovation and productivity, Skills for Growth helps identify and address skills gaps in the workforce to drive businesses forward.

Developing skills at small firms across Scotland will be key to the nation’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

Scottish employers are adapting to a new economic environment – including a greater focus on technology, innovation and productivity – where having the right blend of skills in place is essential.

'Skills for Growth' from Skills Development Scotland helps employers from all sectors face these challenges by equipping people and businesses with the skills to seize opportunities and realise their potential. This will typically be 1 to 3 days of support depending on your business needs and will result in a bespoke people action plan with recommendations.
