Welcome to Skills Launchpad Plymouth
Working in city-wide partnership to connect the people of Plymouth with opportunities for skills, training, education, careers and jobs #joiningthedots

Skills Launchpad Plymouth – the city’s one-stop-shop for skills, training, education, careers and jobs

Skills Launchpad Plymouth supports those who are seeking work, facing redundancy or changing careers through the    Adult Hub for those aged 25 years+, and offering targeted support for young people aged 16-24 years including those with additional needs through the Youth Hub. The intention of the ‘Skills Journey’ through the Launchpad is to put the individual at the heart – recognising that not one size fits all and that anyone in Plymouth can access this free help. The service offers an ethical and inclusive front door, designed to help residents make independent and informed skills and training choices, leading to better access to real employment opportunities.


Supported by Barclays Plymouth (located 140-146 Armada Way in the city centre), Skills Launchpad Plymouth is home to both the Youth Hub and Adult Hub, providing bookable appointments for face to face coordinated services for young people and adults, and a range of activities are delivered each week including drop-in Job Shops for help to join the construction industry, and health and care sector.
