The Skills Hub is funded by the European Social Fund, Cornwall Council and the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.
But we are not providing direct business advice or delivering support activity.
If you’re a pre start-up, start-up or established small or medium sized enterprise (SME) based in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly and have an ambition to grow or improve efficiency, then we can offer you additional support.
Our Business Navigators will get to know your business and your individual needs and point you in the direction of suitable additional support, either from ourselves or from one of our partners.
If you are referred to one of our Business Connectors they will spend more time face-to-face with you to look at your plans for growth, create a practical action plan and introduce you to the right business support partners for you. Our specialist Skills Connectors on the other hand will offer you an informal skills health check to help you identify skills gaps, barriers to growth or areas of underperformance that could be overcome with training and additional skills. They’ll then refer you to the most appropriate training course, workshop or recruitment solution.
It all starts with registration. You have nothing to lose. So do it now!
By completing the full registration you can be signposted to the best resources to assist you with your business development.
The organisations may be local, national, European or International and may offer funding, information, advice or business resources.
If you offer free or reduced cost business information please get in touch with your organisation name, contact details, scheme name and a brief outline of what you can supply.
Got some big news? Why not put it share it in a news post right here on our site. Or if you have a great idea for a blog let us know.
And the joy of being independent means that we are aren’t tied to any one training provider. Our service is unbiased and 100% focused on what is best for your business so can point you in the right direction regardless of who is delivering the course or running the workshop.
We’ve enabled the ability to you to be able to quickly login into the website using the popular social media channels Facebook and Twitter. The first two icons represent the channels you are connected too. Next if you have any new contact requests, you will see a number notification here and also if you’ve received any messages, you’ll see a number next to the messages icon. Finally, a little remote control box, which currently points to the more popular areas of our website.
Click on any of the icons to go the the relevant section of the website to connect to your social accounts or view to contact requests and messages.

Because we have to adhere to server restraints, we need to ensure all images uploaded to our website are optimised, therefore sometimes we need to put restraints on the size of images and the image types that can be uploaded.
For profile images, we always recommend using the .JPG format, we will accept .GIF or .PNG too, but .JPG is the best format to use for photographic images of yourself.
The profile scripts ideally run well with images that are saved to 300-400 pixels wide by 300-400 pixel high.
For cover images, this increases to 1920 pixels wide by 400-450 pixels high.
If you use Facebook or LinkedIn, you can save your profile images from there and they should already be optimised for uploading to our site. But if you have an image you’d like to use, we recommend a file size no greater than 240-250Kb.
There are a number of online sites, that allow you to upload, resize and save optimised images, here’s one of them.
