What is the Workforce Upskilling Grant?
The workforce upskilling grant is a non-repayable grant of up to a maximum of £2,000, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and administered by Business Gateway Fife, for Fife companies looking to improve the productivity and profitability of their business through staff training.
What can the Workforce Upskilling Grant be used for?
Businesses can use the Grant towards staff training to develop their workforce in various areas such as:
- Advanced Manufacturing
- Lean/Six Sigma
- Cyber Security
- Using Hybrid/Virtual Reality in the Workplace
- Project Management
- Computer Aided Draughting and Design
Whilst the Grant is not restricted to any particular topic or training provider, it is based on the employer’s needs - exclusions apply.
The workforce upskilling grant can be a 100% contribution so if the total cost of the training is £2k or less we’ll cover the full amount.
