The Preferred Supplier Network or PSN is further funding, available to help partners reach the targets agreed within the Wolverhampton Skills Connect project.  The funding can be used by the partnership to expand the services on offer to customers, with the aim of supporting the delivery of the projects agreed outcomes.
