Advanced Skills Programme

Develop high level skills in your business with this subsidised series of courses. They are open to small and medium sized organisations in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: the D2N2 area.

Last Chance to Participate

The Advanced Skills Programme is currently fully funded, meaning there is no cost to your organisation. However, funding will only be available until the end of the year and places are limited. Please follow the subject links below for information on how to secure your place and take advantage of this opportunity.

All courses are offered online, enabling your staff to refresh their skills and update their knowledge in an easily accessible and convenient way, even when working from home. Furloughed staff can also undertake training.

If you have not yet participated in the Advanced Skills Programme and have a minimum of eight employees interested in one of our courses, we may be able to offer bespoke training for your organisation. Please email our Business Enquiry Team to find out whether your organisation would be eligible.

How the Advanced Skills Programme is funded

The Advanced Skills Programme is part of the European Social Fund (ESF) High Level Skills programme. We are part of a consortium of higher and further education providers across the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) area, delivering this programme to local small and medium sized organisations.
