Ensuring a workforce with the right skills is essential for growth

If you are looking to grow your business, ensuring your workforce has the right skills, qualifications and knowledge to help drive your business forward is a must.

Thanks to our new partnership with St Helens Chamber, Liverpool Chamber Members are now able to access highly-subsidised business training packages, funded by Skills for Growth. Funding is available for Small & Medium sized businesses (employing under 250 staff) located in the Liverpool City Region.

Available until the 31st March 2018, local businesses can access a range of half day, full day and two day courses to build a bespoke training package, with courses starting from just £20 per delegate.

Joanne Abraham, Director of Training Services at St Helens Chamber, explains: “The benefits of a skilled workforce are hard to ignore. Providing training to your staff is proven to increase motivation and strengthen commitment to your company, both key benefits to a growing business.

“Skills for Growth Funding provides an excellent opportunity for local businesses to access nationally accredited training in a highly cost effective way. We have put together a programme of all our most popular courses for businesses to choose from, but will do our best to accommodate any requests for additional courses.

“Businesses in St Helens have found this training hugely beneficial and we’re delighted to now be able to open it up to Members of Liverpool & Sefton Chamber of Commerce.”

Training is available in a range of business areas, including Management, ICT, Digital Marketing, Business Compliance, Childcare, Health & Social Care and Customer Service.

Details on all forthcoming courses can be found on the St Helens Chamber website at
