Could you be eligible for funding towards training?

Good news! If you’re a small or medium-sized business based in the following areas, your Verner Wheelock training could be part-funded by a grant from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

  • Barnsley
  • Bradford
  • Calderdale
  • Craven
  • Harrogate
  • Kirklees
  • Selby
  • York

We have just become a registered training provider for the scheme which aims to support 3,000 SMEs in the region by up-skilling over 17,000 staff between now and 31st March 2017.

As well as being located in one of the above areas, to be eligible for skills funding you need to employ fewer than 250 people. Your company also needs to have an annual turnover of less than 50 Million Euros and work within one of the LEP’s priority sectors – luckily these include manufacturing and hospitality. Additionally you must be able to contribute to at least 50% of the cost of the training.

Grants are available from £500 to £50,000, so now is the ideal opportunity to capitalise on your company’s training needs.

All you need to do is state which type of training you wish your employees to take and we will check  your eligibility. More details on the support available and the benefits of training your staff can be found in this handy guide
