Fully-funded training can be accessed on topics such as:
Businesses can take part through a range of learning tools such as webinars, face to face events (subject to Covid-19 restrictions) or one-to-one support, either as a one-off or over a period of time.
To be eligible, businesses must be based in and have customers in the Borough. More information is available on the business pages of the Council's website.
Businesses seeking support are advised to contact the training providers directly below for more information. Once the business has identified which training provider they wish to seek support from, they will need to complete a short on-line application form that allows the Council to check their eligibility.
