Programme Closed

The Advanced Skills Programme was part of the European Social Fund (ESF) High Level Skills programme which has now closed, and we are no longer able to receive applications. However, we are currently developing a new series of online courses for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The courses will provide an opportunity for staff to update their knowledge in an easily accessible and convenient way, even when working from home.

Subjects such as leadership and management are designed to support your businesses in striving forward during these uncertain times. If you 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 register your interest or discuss your requirements.
