Training and skills hub opens in Huddersfield


A new training and skills hub allowing West Yorkshire residents to seek expert advice on upskilling and improving their employment prospects has been opened in Huddersfield.


Realise, one of the UK’s leading training providers, has opened an outlet in the Packhorse Shopping Centre as part of its West Yorkshire Adult Education Budget contract.

Staff will be on-site between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday, to offer advice and insight into the apprenticeships and training courses available – including functional skills maths and English,  and digital skills – while tutoring will also take place.

The hub’s official launch was held this week, with dignitaries from the Department for Work and Pensions, West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Kirklees Council amongst those in attendance.

This is another important milestone in the delivery of our West Yorkshire Adult Education Budget contract in Bradford and Kirklees.

Having a hub in a significant shopping centre in Huddersfield gives us the chance to directly interact with anyone looking to either enter the workforce or upskilling those already in work.

We offer a vast range of courses all designed to help people fulfil their potential. Anyone interested about signing up only has to come to our hub.

Our aim is to make it as easy and accessible as possible for people to enrol on the courses we offer and this is another step towards achieving that as we truly embed ourselves in the local community.
