Funding Opportunity – The £12m Supplier Skills Programme has launched and is open for applications
The £12m Supplier Skills Programme (SSP) has launched and is open for applications. The SSP is delivered by Birmingham City Council’s Business Development and Innovation Team (BDI), on behalf of the European Social Fund.
SSP operates on a funding round basis, with rounds being held every quarter until programme closure in March 2023. SSP responds directly to the skills and training needs identified by SME’s for their employees, thereby offering SMEs what they want and at the time they need It, in order to implement their skills and growth plans.
Training grants of between £500 to a maximum of £18,000 per SME are available and training will be funded 50% by the SME and 50% by the European Social Fund grant.
