Take our skills survey for a chance to win £1,000

The words UK Government with an official crest above the word UKWe are carrying out a survey of local businesses to help us understand their training and skills needs. We will then use this information to put in place additional training support to create a workforce with the right skills to help businesses grow.

The survey takes between three to 12 minutes to complete and every business that enters will be put into a prize draw to win £1,000.

The survey is part of the Malvern Hills and Wychavon Upskilling Project which has been funded by the UK Government's UK Community Renewal Fund.
