Preferred Suppliers List for Learning and Development Providers

The Advice Skills Academy (ASA) is a European Social Fund (ESF) funded project, running October 2016 to September 2019 (subject to change control approval), which will develop a co-ordinated approach to identifying learning and development needs of staff within local Citizens Advice services across the Liverpool City Region (LCR).

The project will:

  • Develop a calendar of training opportunities to meet the needs of staff, including internal Citizens Advice delivery, and externally procured delivery
  • Identify other learning and development opportunities, including e-learning, coaching and mentoring
  • Support the development of learning organisations that are responsive to the needs of staff, volunteers, and their learning, development and progression goals

The project has been developed to:

  • Address higher level skills shortages in specialist advice services
  • Provide training and support for people within the workforce to improve skills, knowledge, progression and productivity
  • Provide a training and support route for disadvantaged groups seeking to access further job opportunities in the sector
  • Improve management, leadership and progression capacity
  • Promote equality by improving the progression prospects of women within the workforce
