Gregg Scott, managing director of Realise, said: “Despite the difficulties of the fallout of Covid-19, there are many fantastic opportunities for individuals in Liverpool City Region looking to enhance their skillset and their employability moving forward.
“Our job is to deliver training to make those opportunities a reality and to give people the chance to start and then build careers in their chosen field.
“The number of people in Liverpool City Region who have no qualifications has halved over recent times and we want to continue that trend.
“Due to the devolved powers the region enjoys when it comes to the Adult Education Budget, we will be able to deliver an innovative and flexible approach designed to meet the requirements of employers in the region.”
Realise has delivered Adult Education provisions in Liverpool City Region since August 2019 and successfully tendered for the new contract after a highly competitive process.
Gregg added: “We worked hard throughout the pandemic to ensure adult education and training continued in Liverpool City Region and we were proud to ensure training programmes were delivered to more than 1,200 adults during the height of lockdown through virtual learning.
“We want to build on that momentum and deliver programmes for well over 1,000 adults every year, making a real difference to their lives and the overall economic performance in Liverpool City Region.”
