  • Developing life skills such as confidence, motivation, digital skills, and more.

    The support is available until the end of March 2025. For eligibility criteria and details on how to register, visit the for Transform Your Future website.

RBC’s Director Development & Economic Growth Leanne Ashmore said: “We’re excited to be working in partnership with Futures to deliver this important project, helping residents to take their first steps on a new employment journey.

“Using our allocation of UKSPF, we’ve also developed a variety of initiatives that offer a wide range of employment and skills support including our Rushcliffe Internship Programme, Start South Notts Employment Platform, Skills Development Fund, Learn with Rushcliffe, Low Carbon Bursary and many more.

“Residents and businesses can find out more about these programmes on our website.”
