D2N2 brings together employers, skills providers and key local stakeholders to better understand and resolve skills challenges at a local level.
At D2N2, we believe that anyone who wants to work should have the opportunity to do so, therefore our focus is on breaking down those barriers to work people with multiple and complex needs currently face. To do this we encourage businesses to recruit inclusively.
Just as important as our current workforce is our future one. D2N2 works with secondary schools and further education colleges in the shared pursuit of inspiring young people about their future career options and personal potential. We also work with providers to encourage take-up of apprenticeships.
As we drive activities to support our recovery and growth strategy – our key strategic document up to 2030 – we are unlocking the expertise, the creativity and the political backing to ensure we lead a bold new way of bringing together the education and skills, innovation and business support systems to support our people and businesses to thrive.
