Cumbria & Lancashire

We offer a range of services to help people across Cumbria and Lancashire progress their careers.

Working across Lancaster, Preston, Burnley, Bootle, Crosby, Morecambe, Barrow, Blackpool, and Workington, our teams work in partnership with local employers and the Cumbria and Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnerships to provide relevant training linked to the local labour market.

Both Cumbria and Lancashire have thriving hospitality and tourism sectors, alongside many opportunities for careers in manufacturing, retail and health and social care.

As Britain’s leading provider of skills training, we know what works to help you have a successful career. We have great links with local and national employers like Amazon, Tesco, Boohoo, Bryan's Salads, McQueen's Dairies, Phoenix Security and Lancaster Teaching Hospitals – and after undertaking training with us, you could even land a guaranteed interview with them.

We’ve supported more than half a million people with skills and training – you could be next.

Our programmes are usually free, as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. And taking part won’t affect any benefits you might be receiving.

Whether you’re unemployed looking for work, or looking to progress up the career ladder, our team can help you.
