Partnership Working

The Council is committed to working in partnership with other agencies to:

  • Promote the development of learning communities
  • Ensure local people have access to lifelong learning and training opportunities

    New Deal

New Deal is a key part of the government's Welfare to Work strategy. Personalised programmes of work and skills training opportunities, delivered locally, are aimed at helping unemployed people into work. There are programmes for young people (18-24), 25+, lone parents, disabled people, 50+ and partners of the unemployed.

All programmes are accessible through Employment Services and, whether you are an unemployed individual looking for a job or a company with vacancies to offer, your first point of contact should be your local Job Centre.
