We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed and every business the opportunity to thrive.
“We’re here to do everything we can to nurture the growth of people, businesses and the region. I am confident we have all the skills necessary to help any organisation large or small thrive in today’s fast moving business environment.” Julian Cobley, Managing Director, The Skills & Growth Company
We were established by Cheshire East Council as a new ‘arms-length’ company in April 2016, to bring together existing skills and growth services under one structure. Our objective is to ensure the council can deliver more for less, achieving greater innovation and benefits for businesses and residents. We support businesses to maximise growth, funding and investment opportunities; increase the availability and take-up of apprenticeships, support people into work, help to create jobs and stimulate economic growth and innovation.
Our 25-strong team has a wealth of experience across a range of services, to navigate your growth plan. Whatever your objective, whether it’s a new product innovation, premises expansion or upskilling your team, we help make it happen. In fact, we have already supported businesses to create over 2,000 jobs and secure more than £90m in investment. You can read more about our work in our Annual Review.
