Skills Support for the Workforce is calling for more providers to join its supply chain in Greater Lincolnshire, Leicester and Leicestershire and the Black Country to maximise the training it can offer businesses.
Fully funded training is now available for SMEs in seven regional areas to fill skill gaps, raise productivity and boost business growth.
To expand the training offer available in to SMEs the lead provider for the project, Calderdale College, is seeking to extend its supply chain of training providers. There is no closing date for this rolling opportunity but training providers are encouraged to apply early through the online tendering system, In-tend, to support the programme.
“The aim is for us to build up a bank of suppliers so that we can expand our offering, and ensure the funding available goes to those businesses that need it,” explained Ebrahim Dockrat, External Funding Director of Calderdale College.
The college is looking for training providers that can start immediately, demonstrate a track record for working in one of the three regions and ideally have a pipeline of employers requiring this provision. Providers should also be able to demonstrate successful delivery of similar programmes.
The project is co-financed by the European Union’s European Social Fund and the Education and Skills Funding Agency and is available for SMEs seeking non-compulsory work-based training to support their business growth plan.
