More than £16 million has been invested by the Combined Authority in skills education at colleges, local authorities and learning providers across the Liverpool City Region.

The funding builds on £30 million already invested in buildings, facilities and equipment for skills training in the city region.

This latest round of funding sees £12.6m allocated to 28 projects across the city region, building on £3.5m agreed by the Combined Authority in April for maintenance at the city region’s FE colleges.

Speaking about the funding, Steve Rotheram said:

“Over the last two and a half years we have invested nearly £50 million to ensure that our local colleges and training providers are able to provide first class skills education to people right across the Liverpool City Region.

“Our investment will make sure that our young people will enter the world of work having had the best possible technical and vocational training. I want our workforce to be leaders in the industries of tomorrow – and that all starts with world class training.”
