We work with training and education providers, schools, parents, large employers and small businesses to develop the skills system across the West of England. 

At our core is The Network which supports, represents and connects training and education providers across the region. The network currently includes over 40 training providers including colleges and universities. Members have the opportunity to share best practice, collaborate and get maximum value from their training programmes. Find out more here.
