Skills Focus Programme
A fully funded programme that provides tailored training for small to medium-sized businesses to increase the skills levels of the existing workforce.
Open to employers and businesses in Northern Ireland with fewer than 250 employees.
Key activities which are not eligible for funding under the programme include training which relates to an employer’s statutory or legal requirement, including a renewal of a qualification. This includes training which displaces an employer’s modus operandi and internal staff training.
Skills Focus aims to support, promote, and facilitate collaborative working between business and further education colleges, in order to provide tailored skills provision to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to increase the skills levels of your workforce to level 2 and above qualifications. The programme is currently fully funded by the Department for the Economy.
