Skills Portal

Employers have a unique role to play in preparing our current and future workforce for the opportunities and challenges ahead. So this Skills Portal from New Anglia Growth Hub is designed to help our region’s employers access, understand and navigate all the local support, information and resources available to help get talent acquisition and development spot on.

Plus, we have two dedicated skills advisers, available to make a no cost visit your premises to guide you through the options available.

To begin, click on as many of the accompanying buttons as apply to you to explore the portal. You can also search using a keyword. Alternatively, call us on the number above to arrange an appointment with a skills adviser, or e-mail growthhub@newanglia.co.uk.
