The Skills Hub is based at The Holme Centre at Holme United Reformed Church on Madison Avenue in Holme Wood.
A vast range of courses will be delivered from the centre which will feature two classrooms and will be staffed for local people to call in for advice throughout the week.
The hub has been launched by leading UK training provider Realise and made possible through the Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin and West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s £64 million devolved budget to help adults in some of the most disadvantaged areas of West Yorkshire to access the training they need to get a job and further their career.
The Skills Hub enables adults over the age of 19 to complete nationally recognised level one and level two qualifications, with many individuals entitled to receive the training free of charge.
In the last 18 months, Realise has helped more than 1,800 learners through Adult Education Budget programmes, many of whom live in West Yorkshire.
