Increasing online training and creating more student workshops with local businesses are all part of plans to battle worklessness in Weymouth and Portland.

A review at the Borough Council has been looking at ways to improve employment opportunities in the area.

Ray Nowak, Economic Development Brief Holder for Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: "We have examined the problem of joblessness in great detail so we can better understand how to improve the skills and prosperity of our local workforce."

They're also putting an emphasis on developing apprentice schemes as research shows about seventy per cent of apprentices stay with the employer who trained them.

Many of theses recommendations will be implemented under the new Workforce Skills Plan 2014-2017.
