Welcome to Skills Launchpad Plymouth
connecting local businesses and people with opportunities for skills, training, education, careers and jobs 

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

Skills Launchpad Plymouth offers targeted support for young people aged 16 to 24-years-old, including those with additional needs through the Youth Hub and supports those aged 25 years+ who are seeking work, facing redundancy or changing careers through the Adult HubThe 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. We especially acknowledge the pressures of the cost of living and that is why our 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 a Tuesday drop-in service to help anyone interested in joining the construction industry, and health and care sector.

As well as supporting local people, Skills Launchpad Plymouth’s online Employer Hub brings together localised solutions to help address recruitment, employment, workforce skills and training challenges. Aimed at helping local small to medium sized companies as well as offering additional support for larger businesses, the Employer Hub provides advice, guidance, and access to information setting out clear options to help employers better navigate the complex skills, training and employment landscape.
