£7m funds will help low-skilled workers in Cornwall
Thousands of low-skilled workers could have their prospects boosted thanks to a £7.8 million scheme to make Cornwall's workforce one of the best in Britain.
The Work Place Learning Project, which is being driven by European Union money, is aimed at 6,000 people who have left school with few qualifications.
The scheme will focus on those with jobs and is being led by Cornwall College with the help of partners including the Eden Project and Truro and Penwith College.
Mark Yeoman, head of communication at European Social Fund (ESF) Convergence, said the investment would make a real difference.
