SCPN are an association of training providers. Our aim is to represent training and education across Sunderland. We promote the value of vocational and technical education, especially apprenticeships, to employers and other important stakeholders.

We aim to ensure the people of Sunderland, whether just starting out, or looking to upskill, have good quality opportunities. This is vital to help them play their part in increasing the productivity and prosperity of the City.

For employers it can be a daunting task to select a provider and many work with more than one, giving specialist support to develop skills in different areas.

Some providers offer bespoke training to employers as well as recruitment support. Many programmes are funded and often there are incentive payments to help recruit people from specific age groups. This changes from time to time.
