Funding for Employers
£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).
The support for your business can be divided into 3 distinct stages. There’s a high level of financial support available, so you can reap the rewards of accessing subsidised training for your workforce. The SEE team 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.
You could receive up to £3500 if you recruit an Apprentice to help your business grow as part of a drive to increase the number of 16-19 year old Apprentices in Wales. At Cambria for Business we will manage the recruitment process for you by advertising your vacancy and conduct an initial skills test free of charge.
Do you wish to upskill your existing workforce? Did you know you can benefit from recent changes in Welsh Government funding? As part of Welsh Government’s spirit to create a ‘Prosperous and Secure’ Wales, employees of any age and length of service can now benefit from the fully funded Apprenticeship programme. If you want to expand your business, develop a skilled workforce, reduce training and recruitment costs there’s no better time than today.
