Skills Launchpad Plymouth
Skills Launchpad Plymouth – the city’s one-stop-shop for skills, training, education, careers and jobs
Working in city-wide partnership, 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 to 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. Local businesses are invited to get involved with delivery at Skills Launchpad Plymouth – there are regular pop-up job shops, recruitment and careers events held to engage directly with Skills Launchpad Plymouth members, our young people and adults seeking new opportunities.
The Employer Hub as part of Skills Launchpad Plymouth includes a specific focus on aiding inclusive recruitment and employment and provides localised support for small to medium sized companies to better navigate the complex skills and employment landscape to help tackle recruitment and retention challenges.
