Sussex Skills Solutions is part of East Sussex College and was established in October 2016 to grow the apprenticeship provision of the college. Now in its third successful year, we have taken the decision to expand our delivery to support adults finding work.

We are working hard to understand the needs of our local employers, our local authority, and, most importantly, that this is all aligned to an appropriate and inspiring training programme to support people into work and apprenticeships.

Skills for the Future

The world of work is rapidly changing

East Sussex College has pledged £1million to help retrain and upskill people in Sussex following the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are investing £1million of our Adult Education Budget to support economic recovery in Sussex with a range of fully funded courses and qualifications, available to businesses, employees, jobseekers and volunteers without cost.

We are meeting the current demand for upskilling and CPD by providing flexible, online training in 20 key areas. Our courses include Awareness of Mental Health Problems, Customer Service, Digital Skills for Work, Principles of the Prevention and Control of Infection, Understanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health.

All our courses are funded by the government through the Education & Skills Funding Agency.
