With Brexit on the horizon, we urge you to make use of the final European funding for training before it disappears.

Working in partnership with Serco, we have secured £1.2 million in European Social Funding (ESF), co-financed by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) from the Skills Support for the Workforce Project available to provide training solutions for businesses and individuals from all sectors.

Through workshops, qualifications and bespoke training this funding will enable your business and workforce to gain new skills to sustain your business future.

Hear from:

Donna Lawson, SWW Partnership Coordinator, Serco. Donna will introduce the project, outlining the main aims to enable your business to invest in your staff at all levels to provide training where your training budget hasn’t been able to stretch before.

Nikki Forward, HR Manager, Ocean Group.  Nicki will share with us the impacts and benefits ESF funding has had on their business.

Apprenticeships and changes in 2017

We are aware that there is a lot of information and events out there around Apprenticeships which can be confusing. We aim to deliver a short sharp update and  talk you through the new apprenticeship developments as well as the new apprenticeship levy, changes to funding and how to employ your first apprentice.

Plus hear from:

Kings Service Centre (part of Kings College London), they will be sharing their experiences of apprentices and the benefits they have brought to their companies.
