Fully funded and bespoke support for businesses in Leicestershire

Looking for support to develop your staff? We’re offering fully funded and bespoke training for employers and employees in Leicestershire.

European Social Fund

We’re supporting employers like you to upskill your workforce. Fully funded and bespoke training for both you and your employees means a more developed workforce which meets the needs of the business and reduces skills gaps.

We provide a bespoke, tailored plan to find out what you, your business and your staff need to promote growth and be more productive. We then provide support to put that plan into motion and help you and your staff achieve your goals.

Using our bespoke assessment process, our staff work with each participant to assess their skill level, set goals for which skills they wish to improve and plan the journey they will take to achieve those goals. Personalising support will ensure that everyone can access the training they need and increase the chances of success. Participants work to gain English and Maths skills or Level 2 and 3 qualifications or be supported to enter higher and advanced apprenticeships.
