Reading UK developing skills for the future.....

Locally when over 300 businesses were asked what do you see as the most serious barriers to economic growth?’ - shortage of skills was the top answer.

The workplace skills world is a complex and challenging environment. Competition between publically funded providers leads to duplication, with many employers becoming exasperated by the amount of providers attempting to sell them services – creating confusion and annoyance.

Our solution – the Reading Skills for Business initiative developed by Reading UK in partnership with Reading College aims to de-mistify the local training offer by providing a single point of contact for employers looking to access workplace training.
