DWP funding may be obtained and used to marry employers with individuals seeking employment and vice versa introducing those individuals seeking employment with the employers that require the skilled workforce.
If you are an employer finding it difficult to recruit the skilled workforce you require it may be possible for Sibbald to arrange for funding through our DWP partnership to up-skill & qualify individuals seeking employment to meet your needs. Likewise if you are an individual with an employment opportunity but skills shortage barriers are halting your progression to gain that employment opportunity, our funding team at Sibbald may very well be in a position to help you gain the skills and qualifications you need to secure the employed position you seek.
