If we cannot assist you with funding because your outside Gloucestershire then there is still some great opportunities for us to help you via the CITB Grants shceme.
In a move to get industry back into growth, a £30 million Exceptional Training Grant (ETG) has been approved by the CITB board to incentivise training and reward you if you continue training.
The £30m ETG funding is split £15m for training carried out under the 2012/2013 Period, plus a further £15m for the 2013/2014 Period
To Qualify for ETG you must have completed training that is eligible for Grants Scheme support within either of the two Grant Scheme years.
One of the best ways that you can gain the most appropriate funding is to consider a training and development plan. By working both with us and the CITB a long term goal can be set up to achieve training aims set out over a year instead of just sporadic training on demand.
The team here have a great deal of experience in helping those within scope to gain access to the funding they are potentially due. Give us call to discuss further! 01453 826781 and ask for Alison Sherriff.
C&G Services have secured some funding to allow businesses involved in Civil Engineering within Gloucestershire to gain access to full funding and part funding for NVQ’s to take upskill staff from a red card to blue Operator Card.
Certain criteria needs to be met to gain access to the funding as follows:
- Does your company have less than 250 employees
- Is the learner 19+?
- Employed in Gloucestershire
- Learner must be resident in England
- Workers who came come to the UK with valid work permits are eligible for funding
If you meet all these requirements* then why not get in touch to see how we can help.
The funding we have is limited. As many retailers like to say – ‘When it’s gone it’s gone!’
(* some additional criteria may be required depending on each request for funding, when you enquire we’ll advise)
Don’t forget that as of the 1st August 2013, the new CITB Grants are now live for the period 2013-2014. If you are a levy payer, then think about putting a Training Plan in place to start maximising the grant you can get. Not sure how to do that, ask us!
Make sure that you are claiming all you should, either give me a call or drop me an email to arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements in more detail.
