• Funding for Employers

SEE Information

 

£18.7m Skills for Employers and Employees (SEE) project provides businesses across North Wales with financial support to raise employee skills and knowledge. The project aims to support employers to build a skilled and adaptable workforce through subsidised training and development and has been extended to 2023. Vocational training is available in a range of key sectors including: Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering and Construction, Health and Social Care, Land-based, Energy and Professional Services. Coleg Cambria is the lead provider of a partnership with Grŵp and Llandrillo Menai providing training programmes across 6 counties of North Wales; Flintshire, Wrexham, Denbighshire, Conwy, Anglesey, Gwynedd to help improve Skills for Employers & Employees (SEE).

What support will I get?

There’s now an even higher level of financial support available through the project in response to the Covid-19 virus situation. Therefore you can reap the rewards of accessing up to 100% subsidised training for your workforce (eligibility criteria applies*) up until the 31st August 2021.

The Employer Engagement and ESF teams will help you carry out an assessment of your staff, and identify the skills gaps and training opportunities within your team. Once a training plan has been agreed, the approved providers will manage the courses on your behalf. All the courses will be specific to the needs of your business and selected to bring the very best out of your team.

*Business must not have exceeded receipt of maximum value 200,000 euros of De Minimis state aid in the last 3 financial years. De Minimis declaration required.
