The most important priority is to identify a training programme that fits your business needs and then look to identify a funding solution to support with the financial investment required. Unfortunately in so many cases training companies begin by identifying a funding route and then shoehorning in a training programme that meets the needs of the funding body and not the workforce. At Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion we will always start by identifying training that will have a positive impact on your business in order to ensure you receive the best return on investment, which in most cases is staff time!
Our team of Business Development Officers will discuss a range of options with you. In some cases Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion can process all of the required paperwork, however in some cases we may work in partnership with external funders such as the local council, Careers Wales, Remploy, DWP, etc to find the best solution for you and your business. In all cases we will advise you on what options are available and what is required to ensure eligibility.
No training programme is free, in all cases someone will be paying for the training on your behalf. If it is not your organisation it will be an external partner such as Welsh Government or the EU. In some cases there may be funding to cover a significant percentage, or all of the fees associated with study of an entire qualification, however it is important to recognise that you must successfully complete the qualification in order to access the required financial support.
Funding Examples include:
It should also be noted that all funding options are subject to application and are only available to fixed number of applicants per financial or academic year.
