Serco delivers a comprehensive range of skills, training and enterprise support programmes on behalf of local and central governments. Our capabilities include vocational training and development, in-work training for businesses, leadership development for the education sector, and programmes that target the specific needs of communities and the different growth needs of local businesses.
We help individuals to enhance their work prospects, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop skills so their businesses can flourish, and the education sector to continue to raise standards through a comprehensive range of government-led skills and training programmes. In doing so, we help to strengthen local economies.
With an in-depth knowledge of every contract we deliver, the strength of our team rests with the dedication of each and every member of staff to provide customers and programme participants with the best possible service and outcomes.
Through our comprehensive service capability, we are able to manage a range of programmes on behalf of local and central governments:
- Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)
SMEs often need additional capacity, expertise, and funding to provide important employee training and business development. We administer government programmes that aim to help SMEs upskill their workforce and grow their business.
