Let’s Talk Real Skills 

Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY) is a delivery partner for the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges-led, European Social Fund programme Let’s Talk Real Skills.

The programme seeks to engage regional SMEs in identifying skill needs, co-designing and accessing pilot provision. It also presents the opportunity for HE, FE, private providers and the regional SME community to explore ways to enhance training pathways and co-design new provision that responds to sector and SME needs. 

Collaborative Skills Partnerships (CSP) have been established to focus on the following sectors and growth areas: Health & Social Care, MedTech, Digital, Creative Industries, Textiles, Film & TV, Manufacturing & Engineering, Construction, Rail and Low Carbon. 

Over the next month, Clare Jackson, GHWY’s Higher Level Skills Manager will be talking to all member institutions about the ways they can engage and benefit from the programme.
