Explore how you can get more out of work

Our skills and employability service provides opportunities for people to unlock the benefits of learning and work. Access to learning, development and career advice can make a big difference. That's why our team offer support so you can find the right way ahead, gain skills or qualifications, progress in your job or start on a new path.

There are many options available, and we'll talk you through how you can improve your employability and digital skills. Our latest video shares Julia's story about how access to information, advice and guidance has positively impacted working life.

Cllr Robert Frost, Cabinet Spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: "In Barnsley, we believe that having a job is more than just about income. It can give people a renewed sense of purpose and belonging by sparking their interests and motivations. It also supports good health and wellbeing, while helping people connect with others. That's why we support people to access lifelong learning and develop their employability, so everyone can build their skills to get into, progress at and stay in work."
