Skills To Grow skillstogrowlogo

Skills to Grow is an exciting collaboration driven by our shared desire to provide the best possible training and support for our volunteers and staff and to enable us to provide the best service we can to our customers and those needing our support.


The Assessment Centre is managed by Community First and supported by their Learning and Development Team who are based in Petersfield, Hampshire. It has been formed in partnership with local Citizens Advice centres: East Hampshire and Havant.

The shared vision is to be able to develop and support local people through the provision of high quality

training underpinned by nationally recognised qualifications.

Citizens Advice head office has worked with partners across the voluntary sector to develop qualifications in advice and has a commitment to deliver them across the network. To achieve this Citizens Advice is registered with Skills For Justice Awards (SKFJA) as an Assessment Centre.

Locally, we are building on this work and our Assessment Centre is also approved by SKFJA as the

Awarding Body. This enables us to deliver and assess qualifications locally to both Citizens Advice

centres and other providers of legal advice.

We are able to provide a range of qualifications in the Customer Services, Business Admin, Management, Education and Advice topic areas. Our courses are suitable for anyone who would like to develop their skills and gain accreditation in these areas.
