During the Covid pandemic, businesses had to immediately reinvent the way they served their customers, often requiring new skills and tasks from their employees. Processes were streamlined, businesses learned to do more with less. Meetings went online. Workers learned new tech skills.
Companies that were able to seamlessly make the switch to working remotely almost overnight learned a lot about what skills and tools their employees really need to be productive. Now, as businesses reopen employers have a much bigger pool of talent from which to select their employees. They will be selective and want workers who can be more productive, able to handle the time-saving tech tools at their disposal.
For that reason, there has never been a more important time to prepare people and our communities for the new face of the future of work. To help the newly unemployed get back to work, we need to arm them with the skills they need to be competitive in the quickly evolving workplace.
We work with business communities and local sector communities to support growth and ensure our support tackles ongoing challenges faced by rural and coastal communities, and the new ways of working and new skills needed for the future.

Despite the current challenges, CMN has won a significant new Training Project Fund worth £3.5 million. The project is called ‘Employer Led Skills’ and for the first time we are able to support ANY training for your business (subject to eligibility). This has never been available in Cornwall before.
The fund offers grants towards the cost of your training, provided it is arranged via CMN. The training support will be more specialist than the current free remote training workshops and we will operate on a first come, first served basis.
