Moving On

Do you want to support, recruit and train young new talent for your business? Do you want to have access to the next generation workforce? Moving On has been developed to help meet Lancashire's business needs for their workforce of the future.

Moving On aims to improve the skills of young people so that local businesses can operate successfully and grow in Lancashire.  Young people are trained in the skills needed to be productive in the workplace and you can work with the training network to develop young people for your workforce through work placements and progression into traineeships and apprenticeships.

The project aims to provide personalised and flexible packages of support appropriate to individual young people’s needs and aspirations that are informed by the opportunities available in the local labour market.  This will include vocational and employability skills training as well as bespoke pre-employment or pre-apprenticeship training packages designed in response to employers’ recruitment needs.  The aim is to support young people to progress into employment, apprenticeships or further training.

You have a choice of local training providers and colleges to work with, so all you need to do to find out more is get in touch and the team will do the rest.
