Skills-Third Sector launches first skills website for charities

Skills-Third Sector, with co-investment from UKCES Growth and Innovation Fund, is due to launch an interactive online skills platform to help charities find training to develop their workforce. It will be the first comparison site for the sector, giving charities the chance to source skills, compare offers and find training.

The first version of the platform went live this week, asking users to register, spread the word and prepare photographs, videos and product descriptions to load into their own pages from 21st October. The site will fully launch on 2nd December.

Graham Leigh, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Skills-Third Sector said: “The Platform is the product of two years of refining a concept with more than 500 representatives of the sector. Right at the heart of the platform is an attempt to create a genuinely demand-led environment that enables training providers to tailor their tools and products to the needs of people in the sector. We hope it will improve access to skills development as well as appetite, increase investment from employers and reduce cost and risk for great providers struggling to attract viable numbers.”

During his trip, Ed visited the Street Child Liberia project which uses Comic Relief cash to help give vulnerable children a safe place to stay, reuniting them with their relatives and helping them get back into school.
