CPCA Retraining Scheme
Recharge your skills or the skills of your employees to boost your business.
The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Retraining Scheme is a new pilot programme to prepare adults for changes to the economy. It will help them to retrain and secure better jobs whilst supporting employers to get the skilled workers they need. The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Retraining Scheme has been launched in response to the current economic situation presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Businesses are currently experiencing significant interruption to their operations; some sectors are experiencing fall in demand for their products and services whilst other sectors are experiencing unprecedented growth. The CPCA recognises that businesses and individuals will need to evolve and diversify to ensure future stability and growth of the economy.
The CPCA Retraining Scheme Pilot has been developed with the current COVID-19 situation in mind. The CPCA Retraining Scheme will offer online introductions to Project Management, Leading Change, Team Leadership and Operational Leadership. Other full training programmes in Project Management and Management funded via the Apprenticeship Levy* will also be available as progression routes. As we assess the labour market in the coming months, we will use that data to inform future training needs for businesses and adapt the CPCA Retraining Scheme to meet that demand.
