Would you like to be a beneficiary?

With a £30 M second tranche of funding from the Regional Growth Fund,  we now have over 50 companies on the programme. There are a few funded places remaining. We would therefore welcome Expressions of Interest from companies with a turnover of at least £10 M that want to secure one of these limited places.

Companies are expected to match in kind – rather than cash – the value of the benefit they receive. For example each participating company has an agreed training plan tailored to their individual needs. The RGF pays for the training while the company’s “cost” is the value of the time of individuals participating in development or training.   To date this private sector contribution is valued at over £40 million.

A typical four-year programme is anticipated to be around £1.2 million of funded training and development, which would be matched by the participating company’s in-kind contribution.
