Meet Our Greater Manchester Team

Thousands of adults across Greater Manchester are benefitting from locally funded skills training as devolution of the £92 million Adult Education Budget (AEB).

The AEB, which transfers funding, from the central government to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), is supporting tens of thousands of the city-region’s residents every year to develop the skills they need for life and work.

This opportunity will help to ensure that employers can access the skilled workforce needed for businesses across the city-region to grow and thrive.
