East Coast Skills Fund

Introduction and Background

It is widely recognised that the UK will have a shortage of technical and engineering skills needed to meet the UK’s future employment needs. With this in mind, each year, up to £75,000 of the main East Coast Community Fund will be set aside for a “Skills Fund”.

The Skills Fund is divided up into different strands, but its overall aim is to provide educational and learning opportunities for people within the Fund’s benefit area to help to improve their skills and employment opportunities.
