Last month (July 2015) we wrote about the LEP Funding for Business Programme which “has launched a service that provides skills support to small and medium sized businesses. The LEP skills service helps businesses to identify their skills needs based on their business growth objectives and then find the right training solution.” – LEP skills service
Earlier in August we went to visit the LEP Skills Service Team and we are pleased to announce that Social Progress Ltd is registered to deliver training for the LEP Skills Service.
Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has launched a service that provides skills support to small and medium sized businesses. The LEP Skills Service helps businesses to identify their skills needs based on their business growth objectives and then find the right training solution. Small and medium businesses based in the Leeds City Region that have a budget to put towards training, could be eligible for funding between £500 and £50,000. To find out more about the LEP Skills Service and to apply, visit www.the-lep.com/for-business/skills-and-training/lep-skills-service
The types of courses that could be eligible for the Skills Fund are; Social Media Training (for business), Social Media Strategy, Content Planning, Blogging and Social Media Marketing. Please note that all skills service applications are subject to approval by The LEP Panel and are assessed case by case. Training through LEP Skills Service must be employer-led.
So how’s this relevant to your business working with Social Progress? Well, we can put together a package of Social Media Training that meets the “minimum intervention” criteria including Social Media Review, Social Media Strategy and Planning, 1-to-1 Tailored Training Sessions, in-House Workshops and Open Workshops too. We’ve already had a number of clients got through the LEP Skills Service who have received up to 50% funding towards the training they’ve had with us.
Confused? No problem, give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll be happy to chat to you about it.
