Further Education Sector Responds to COVID Crisis with Fully Subsidised Training for Employers

In response to the crushing impact of COVID-19 on the economic wellbeing of Wales, Coleg y Cymoedd has come together with WEFO (Welsh European Funding Office) to develop a package of support to help and assist businesses during this time.

With the support of ESF funding, we can now offer local businesses accredited training and development qualifications for their staff, ranging from Levels 1 - 7 that are 100% subsidised.

We are delighted to announce that with immediate effect, and expected to run until August 2021, this training is now available for qualifying companies. These include public, private and third sector organisations of any size, with a base in Wales, who have not already received more than 200,000 Euros in de minimis state aid over the last 3 fiscal years.

The training must be an approved and accredited qualification and includes a range of competence based, work-related qualifications for all business sectors.
