Swindon and Wiltshire City Deal


This City Deal addresses the growing higher level skills gap in Swindon and Wiltshire.

It will also:

  • give armed forces service leavers in the area a guarantee of an opportunity to extend their skills to a full higher level qualification to support their transition to civilian life
  • help to reverse the decline in part-time higher education participation by providing part-time, flexible higher education through the University Campus of Swindon and Wiltshire
