£4.5m skills cities fund launched
The Government has announced a £4.5 million fund aimed at boosting adult skills in cities across England.
The City Skills Fund will offer £500,000 to help provide skills identified by local employers, in partnership with colleges and other organisations.
Cities Minister Greg Clark said: "The fund will see our core cities working in partnership with local colleges to ensure employers in their area have access to people with the right skills to help them thrive and grow. We are giving cities the chance to build the skills they think are most important."
