Working Skills for Adults 2

Working Skills for Adults 2 will increase the ownership of generic, transferable skills at all levels from basic to level 2 across the workforce through community based provision, thereby improving the opportunities for currently low skilled workers to sustain employment and increase earnings potential. 

Community based provision will focus on supporting reluctant learners to engage with flexible learning opportunities outside of the workplace and will offer a range of provision including literacy, numeracy, ICT and other generic transferable skills resulting in an eligible qualification from basic to level 2. Basic literacy and numeracy skills acquisition will form a key area to improve the mobility of the workforce and sustainable employment.

Working Skills for Adults 2 offers support tailored to the individual through the assigning of an Employment Support Worker to develop an action plan with the participant.  The support that is available includes confidence building, health and wellbeing activities including mindfulness and gentle exercise and free qualifications up to level 2.

Working Skills for Adults 2 has been part-funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government. The project is currently funded until 2022.
