Partner Opportunities for upcoming European Social Fund programmes - skills support for the unemployed

September 12th, 2019

The Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has commissioned a new Skills Support for the Unemployed contract under an ESF transition programme for York North Yorkshire & East Riding Enterprise Partnership.

Skills Training UK has a long and successful track record in delivering European Social Fund provision and is already a Prime Contractor to the ESFA for delivery of these contracts in the Coast to Capital, London, South East, and Stoke and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) regions.  We are interested in hearing from Partners who currently deliver in the York North Yorkshire & East Riding Enterprise Partnership region or would be able to establish a presence in the region if offered the opportunity.

Skills Training UK is an established Prime Contractor and as a contract manager has been accredited with the highest score of ‘Excellent’ for the Merlin Standard twice. Its supply chains embrace the full diversity of partner organisations, including local authority, third sector, voluntary sector, further education, private training providers and charities.

Skills Training UK would like to hear from Providers who would be interested in becoming a delivery partner for one or more of these skills programmes. If you would like to be considered for this LEP region, please download the EOI form and once complete, send it to
