East Riding College won an Exceptional Employer Engagement Award for our work with the European Social Fund (ESF) Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) project between 2016 and 2019. SSW is designed to help employers classed as small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Humber and East Riding develop their workforces through fully funded training. The aim of the project is to help businesses to improve their productivity and retain their competitive edge. Since 2016 the East Riding College business development team have helped numerous businesses access training and development through the scheme, as one of a network of specialist training providers. The team identify employers' training needs and source funded training to help employers upskill their employees.
