Some of you may have heard of this before and some of you may not have. Just a quick note to let you know that if you or a contact you know would like to get some business growth consulting/coaching help on developing your/their business over the next month there is some funding available that can help with this. Take a look at some brief details below and let us know if you would like to have a no-obligation chat about how this could work for your business or someone you know.
I look forward to hearing from you.
The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has been providing Leadership and Management (L&M) funding to businesses for several years. We have developed a relationship with the programme funders and can now offer a programme which has evolved to encompass more established businesses such as yours.
The programme, funded by the LSC, is specifically aimed at business owners/managers/directors responsible for the direction of an organisation, including private, franchise, public and voluntary sector bodies employing between 5 and 249 staff. The funding can be put to a range of services provided by us to help business owners and directors develop the skills to grow their business. Our role is to understand your needs so that the programme can be tailored to suit you. We don’t and never will take a ‘once size fits all’ approach to learning and development.
To be eligible for the programme your organisation must:
• employ between 5 to 249 people, which can include Company directors, part-time , volunteer and contract staff
• not already have L&M funding support (under the Train to Gain scheme)
• applicants must be from an EU country, or have lived in an EU country for the last 3 years
• applicants (for us) need to be based in the London area
The first £500 of services are paid for by a grant. A further £500 grant is available, when matched by the business, making the total value of support £1500 of which the business only contributes £500. You will be required to pay VAT to us. The LSC does not rebate VAT and you can claim this through your usual VAT return.
ACT NOW to secure your funding before it runs out. The availability for funding will be reviewed at the end of March 2010 and may not be available to you past this date. We will help you complete a very simple application form to find out if you are eligible for funding, so to learn more about how we could help simply contact us now.
