The National Skills Academy for Financial Services (NSAFS) is offering support packages to help people find jobs and improve their skills if they are made redundant.
Packages cover vocational training and skills development including IT courses and managament training and are being offered by the colleges that make up the NSAFS training provider network.
The courses are funded by regional development agencies and the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). All training is designed to be bespoke to the needs of companies and staff.
Sylvia Perrins, CEO of the NSAFS, comments: "These initiatives are providing vital services to help and support workers get back on their feet. The financial services sector is just one area that has seen many thousands of people lose their jobs and it is great to see the colleges responding to these needs."
