Skills and employability

Skills Launchpad Plymouth

Working in city wide partnership, Plymouth City Council has set up ‘Skills Launchpad Plymouth’ as a virtual free one-stop-shop skills service which aims to help local people stay informed to equip themselves with the skills and confidence that they will need to play a part in the city’s future. The aim is to help local people to build the skills that local employers need both today and in the future to fill the jobs.
