Weymouth College wins government funding to kickstart careers in green construction in Dorset

A government funding boost will help Weymouth College to deliver high-quality training and kickstart careers in green construction in the Dorset area.

Weymouth was among colleges, universities and other training providers across the UK selected to receive a share of £200million in the latest round of the Local Skills Improvement Fund (LSIF) and Skills Injection Fund.

The funding will help transform skills training so that local businesses can continue to tap into the workforce they need to thrive, while helping more people to secure good jobs closer to home.

The innovative projects will support people to gain the skills needed to launch careers in the green sector and support the local economy to grow.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said: “This investment is about boosting local industries, building people’s skills and ultimately futureproofing our economy and the career prospects of the next generation.

“Our local skills projects will bring together regional organisations, businesses and education providers to respond to the specific needs of employers, building an increasingly skilled workforce and growing local economies.

“Whether it is green skills, construction, engineering or digital, thousands more people can now gain the skills they need to secure good jobs closer to home. These are long-term plans that will ensure every area can have a brighter future.”
