Skillmakers - An overview

Skillmakers has been designed to allow businesses in Watford and South West Hertfordshire to access the information, guidance and resources needed to improve their business through skills, training and corporate social responsibility.

Skillmakers is a free-to-use resource for local businesses to access the skills, information and contacts they need to grow.

At the heart of this community is an online hub supported by a knowledgeable team that can help you find local solutions to training, recruitment and corporate social responsibility.

Skillmakers gives you direct access to this intelligence, plus insights into ways we can all prosper through sharing experiences and developing a pipeline of local talent.

A central feature of this networked approach is engagement with charities and community groups. Partnering on projects targeting social priorities has the power to make a real difference locally – and is guaranteed to raise the profile of the employers involved

A bit of detail: Skillmakers is a collaboration of West Herts College, Oaklands College and Watford Borough Council, with support from Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and a growing number of leading local businesses. Training solutions from short courses to full apprenticeships are available from Together Training – a partnership training provider supported by West Herts College and Oaklands College.
