Skills and Training


Skills and training for staff, upskilling your supply chain, supporting young people. These are all challenges for businesses but there are opportunities and support that can help you with these.

We work closely with partner organisations and providers to ensure that we can provide you with up to date and current information and access to these. We support directly, where appropriate for us to do so. These are a few of the current programs available to support you with your skills and training needs:

Are you a business looking to help young people in their careers?

The New Anglia Careers Hub brings together schools, colleges, employers and providers to drive forward a careers education that will support the ambitions of the business community in Norfolk and Suffolk and its young people.

Youth Entrepreneurship program

With 89% of 9,000 businesses in Babergh and Mid Suffolk employing less than 10 people it is impossible to overstate the importance of small and micro businesses to our economy, yet this is something that is all too often invisible to many young people.

2022/23 has seen a partnership between Menta, West Suffolk Council and Babergh Mid Suffolk run a pilot program that offers young people the opportunity to understand the importance, challenges and opportunities of starting your own business .
