Women and Work – Supported by Shropshire Training

The Women and Work project aims to deliver high quality training that addresses the issue of females being under-represented in the UK Food and Drink industry and their poor progression rates.

It is a great opportunity for some of your staff to receive any training that may be needed possibly fully funded. 

In brief the funding is:

For all females working in Food and Drink businesses or associated

  • Up to £800 training fund per person inc VAT
  • Training of any kind, accredited or bespoke, plus Business consultations
  • Completion of all training must be by end of March 2013.
  • Employer’s contribution in kind only (staff hours)
  • Excess costs above £800 per person would have to be met by the employer 

We are a registered training provider for the National Skills Academy and for this funding. 

We are currently or will be providing training to businesses from this fund for the following:

If you believe that you would benefit from any of the above or indeed other business support, apprenticeships or training we might be able to provide, please contact us as soon as possible as we are not sure how long the funding will be available.
