National Safety Training Services has also; “Won the Humber Talent Match Contract”.

The vision is that; over a 5 year period “Talent Match Humber” will support 1,500 young people with multiple needs, aged 18-24, who are long-term unemployed, or economically inactive. The aim to get 330 (22%) into sustained jobs or self-employment and 450 (30%) into apprenticeships or further learning / training. With our support, the aim is to help 1200 (80%) young people to improve their ability to cope with long-term unemployment, develop greater self-confidence, and increase their sense of optimism about the future.

As part of this unique Humber Talent Match program NSTS will be hosting an initial ice breaker day out with the team at NSTS and an end of course celebration. They are in talks with a couple of local employers to secure vital work experience for our young people and we are keen to hear from more employers who could provide any places for up to 3-4 weeks work experience for our young people”. The work experience will only take place once the young people are fully qualified and ‘work ready’. This work experience has already started and the initial feedback has been very successful.

The ultimate aim of this initiative is to get all of these young people into Jobs. Along with FREE IOSH, Forklift & Warehousing courses National Safety Training Services, continue to go from strength to strength.

Humber LEP Chairman Lord Haskins is urging SMEs to take advantage of a £3.5 million fund for workplace training courses after Hull College secured the money from the European Social Fund.

The College has secured the contract for £3.5 million to deliver the Skills Support for the Workforce and Local Response Fund (LRF).

The focus for the funding will be to deliver workplace learning courses across the Humber region to meet individual, employer and regional needs by up skilling the workforce.

The project will be delivered in partnership with Bishop Burton College, East Riding College, Grimsby Institute, North Lindsey College and a number of specialist providers to engage with learners and key employment sectors as identified by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.

The contract will run until July 2015, and its programme is aimed at supporting employed individuals aged 19 and over in a small medium enterprise. It will enhance their skills and career prospects to reduce the risk of long-term unemployment and welfare dependency while boosting the local economy.

To ensure the greatest impact to local businesses and the economy, the programme will target key growth sectors in the region as defined by the Humber LEP including? Chemicals, Steel, Food Processing, Engineering, Manufacturing and Healthcare. Support will also be prioritised for key local employment growth sectors including Construction, Transport, Business Services, Health, Hotels and Catering, Retail, Financial and Business Services, Gas, Electricity and water, Paper and Publishing.

Lord Haskins, Chair of Humber Local Enterprise Partnership says: “This Skills Support for the Workforce is aimed at SMEs which play a vital role in the Humber economy and it is important that the Humber LEP supports them to grow.

“SMEs need to take advantage of this £3.5 million funding to up-skill their staff and I encourage all employers to make contact with their local provider about their training needs, since this is a real opportunity for their employees to gain new skills and qualifications.”

80% of all employers in the Humber area are SMEs and one of the aims of the Humber LEP is to increase the number of employers who train their staff.

The Renewable Energy sector and other developments offer companies in the Humber region unprecedented opportunities to expand and grow. It is estimated that over the next five years up to 22,000 jobs will be created in the region. The up-skilling of the workforce is vital in enabling existing companies to take advantage of the new opportunities that the renewable industry and its supply chain offers.
