More investment for Island's Future skills and education opportunities

Thu, 01 Oct 2020

Additional training and educational opportunities are to be made available to Island residents.

It's part of the Economic Recovery Programme which was announced by Treasury Minister Alfred
Cannan MHK in his July budget update.

The funding is available to provide new courses and to increase places on existing courses at UCM.

This will provide a wide range of initiatives aimed at training and support for people on the Island.

A flexible tailored programme of learning will begin with immediate effect and also includes an
expansion in the range of apprenticeships and higher education programmes.

Minister for Enterprise, Laurence Skelly MHK commented: "The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the most significant challenge to our economy, our education and to our health and wellbeing for a generation. Yet it is how we respond to that challenge that is even more critical to ensure the Isle of Man continues to be an Island of enterprise and opportunity."

"Through the Economic Recovery Programme, Isle of Man Government is committed to investing in our people by expanding the opportunities for developing core skills, providing paid training and delivering qualifications and skills that are in demand in our economy and that will help people find employment opportunities in the long term."
