We are very excited to have updated our objectives for 2016 onwards….
LinkedUp Training CIC is moving into a phase of growth, wanting to change the way education affects business in the Solent Region. We all know that Portsmouth has a skills shortage, right the way up from 19+to Level 4 skills that employers want. Our aim is to provide education for those that slipped through the net at school starting with motivation (!) but also, to hit higher end skills, meaning that when the jobs come up in Portsmouth there will be local residents able to fill them!
This means training, training for private businesses to upskill the staff they have in the meantime and also training/education for those who are trying to change their lives and achieve better outcomes for the whole family.
We are going to focus on mobilising Portsmouth residents! We are going to focus on IT and business skills. We are going to offer training and education to people when they want it, in short intensive courses.
We will have work experience opportunities. Are you with us? If you have a team you aren’t getting the most of, contact us. Likewise, if you are a 25 year old with no qualifications whatsoever but want to get your life on track, contact us. We want to help at both ends of the spectrum and in-between. A social training school, hopefully generating a few start-ups along the way. Ask us!
This Social Enterprise is scaling up to meet business needs and social aspirations at the same time. Watch this space. We are on a mission….
