Advanced Skills Programme

Develop high level skills in your business with this subsidised series of courses. They are open to small and medium sized organisations in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: the D2N2 area.

These courses have moved online

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), we will now be offering a range of online, bitesized courses until at least the end of May. Your staff will be able to refresh their skills and update their knowledge in an easily accessible and convenient way, even when working from home. Even furloughed staff can undertake training.

If you would like us to provide a course that isn’t currently offered, email our Business Enquiry Team and we'll do our best to accommodate you. 

How the Advanced Skills Programme is funded

The Advanced Skills Programme is part of the European Social Fund (ESF) High Level Skills programme. We are part of a consortium of higher and further education providers across the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) area, delivering this programme to local small and medium sized organisations.
