Quality Jobs

Plymouth and South Devon Freeport will support our efforts to up-skill our workforce, including those vulnerable to redundancy as a result of the pandemic:-

  • By adopting the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and putting industry at the heart of the skills development agenda, and
  • Establishing a Maritime Skills Academy working with the marine cluster that is already here and the new players that the freeport will bring.
  • We will ensure a full range of quality jobs from entry level apprenticeships to qualified specialists ensuring that there are opportunities at all skill levels, and
  • The clustering of marine focussed businesses will allow skills to be shared and provide opportunities for career progression.
