Small grants are available for licensing, and qualifications to upskill staff.
In addition to the non-financial support available, we are making provision for a small number of match-funded grants to help businesses with the cost of upskilling their staff to achieve higher wages and become more valuable to their organisation.
Applications will be invited from businesses seeking contributions towards training or qualifications for new and existing staff to a maximum value of £500 where the business will contribute half the cost.
Whether it is for first aid training, forklift driver's license or health and safety certifications, we will help make it more affordable for the business to recruit new staff and develop the skills of their workforce.
This programme is open to eligible small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) actively trading or registered within the London Borough of Bexley
