The Skills Service is part of Opportunity Peterborough’s economic development portfolio, now funded by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority. Responding to local business needs to fill skills gaps and develop employability skills in young people, we co-ordinate activities between businesses and schools, and other organisations with access to young people. Young people need inspiration as well as information and guidance, which is best achieved through effective engagement with employers.

We also work with businesses to help with staff training plans, connecting businesses with skills experts locally and providing workshops on the benefits of a highly skilled team and alternative recruitment methods such as apprenticeships.
