Further £3.25m for Humber LEP to boost skills & employment

£3.25 million in additional funding has been awarded to the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to provide new services across the region’s employment and skills sector.

The LEP successfully bid for the funding from the European Social Fund (ESF) National Reserve Fund. It will now put out calls for projects which organisations will be able to bid into to deliver programmes aligned to our employment and skills strategy aims in the Humber.

The calls will cover projects including support in the workforce for those aged 50 plus, mental health support for employers, improved digital skills and leadership training.

One call is now live – with £750,000 of ESF funding available for an organisation to run a project to provide Leadership and Management training for businesses across the Humber.

The focus of delivery must be on supporting participants to complete qualifications/part-qualifications in Leadership and Management at Levels 2, 3 and 4, providing a ladder of opportunity for people to develop their skills at varying levels.

This will enable people to progress into supervisory, middle management levels and through into senior leadership roles.

Ultimately, the aim of the programme is to increase the number of people that are achieving higher levels of qualifications that they currently have, in order to meet the evidenced demand in the Humber economy. Proposals must be structured in a way that will support the achievement of this aim.

Meanwhile, the remaining calls will soon go live via the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) National Reserve Fund.
