Update on SSW

Everybody knows about the proposals for the apprenticeship levy although, despite the plethora of well meaning seminars and events, outlining the changes, the devil is in the detail and it seems that things are being thought through a bit 'on the hoof ', at present.
However, when BDM were delivering training in Worcestershire to upskill the local workforce, short, accredited courses always proved popular with businesses going through busy periods whilst recognising the need to bring out the full potential in their staff.
Yet it appears that there's a question mark behind the government (and their agencies) commitment to Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) initiatives. Let's hope that the powers that be realise the need for this sort of flexible funding. Calls for SSW tenders are starting to appear in different parts of the country but so far ( if you'll excuse the mixing of metaphors) there's been a blinding silence for the West Midlands area.
