D2N2 European Social Funds Workshop - Chesterfield
Tue 19 July 2016, 10:00 – 14:00 BST
Up to £6.3m of European Social Funding (ESF) is now available to prospective organisations to deliver the Skills Local programme across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire
The SKILLS Local programme aims to support and incentivise employers to provide work related training for their low skilled workers and to provide work related higher skills pathways for their current workforce, including apprenticeships.
In addition to the SKILLS Local programme, businesses and individuals will soon be able to access up to a further £10.6 million of employment and skills support across D2N2. This European Social Funding will support the development of an integrated system of support across D2N2 which will help people and businesses develop the skills required for employment and growth in the forthcoming years
The 3 programmes that will be launched in the near future are
EMPLOY Local – up to £5.4m
Youth Engagement for Derby, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire – up to £3.2m
CAREERS Local – up to £ 2m
