StartUp Croydon Creative Community Skills
In the cost-of-living crisis it is more important than ever that Londoners can upskill and boost their earnings, to help to ease the financial pressures that so many are facing.
Community organisations play a vital role in supporting this mission. The Mayor of London has committed to making adult education more accessible and to build a fairer city for everyone, ensuring all Londoners who need it can get into training and develop their skills.
StartUp Croydon are excited to announce our new Creative Community Skills project funded through the Mayor of London’s Skills for Londoners Community Outreach Programme which aims to support you to understand, identify and access adult education courses and training to allow you to develop yourself, your skills and your business.
