The Wirral Plan: is a 2020 Vision recognises that a successful economy is fundamental to the borough’s prosperity. Creating greater job opportunities for Wirral residents is a key pledge of the Plan. This includes working with partners to reduce unemployment ensuring residents, including young people, are ready for work and can find employment opportunities; and improving skills levels and access to training. The Wirral Ways to Work Programme is part of the wider Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Ways to Work Programme.
It is a local intelligence driven, comprehensive and integrated programme for young people and adults designed to improve personal resilience and progress to sustainable employment. Unemployed and Inactive people, including those furthest from the labour market will access a suite of individually tailored products which will add value to mainstream provision, respond to employer needs and yield better outcomes.
