Extension of Funding Programme confirmed
Impellus is able to announce that the matched funding initiative has been extended until 31st August 2018.
With the Apprenticeship Levy now in force, we felt it unlikely that funding would be available after last week’s end of August deadline, so we really welcome the decision to extend funding for a further 12 months, which has just been confirmed.
However, there will be no continuation beyond this second extension of what was originally a three- year initiative.
Improve your Productivity with funded Management courses
In the light of recent research showing that UK productivity is 35 percentage points behind Germany and 30 percentage points behind the US and that a key factor is that the UK falls behind in quality of leadership and management¹, we feel this extension of the funding is a very positive step.
Organisations in the private, public and charitable sectors have the opportunity to boost their productivity and the confidence of their managers with funded leadership and management, as well as commercial skills, training courses this autumn to better future-proof themselves for 2018.
Whilst funding terms remain the same, benefitting organisations need to provide a little more information to qualify, although this can still be done over the phone.
Organisations who have claimed previously may claim again, except for where funding applications were not completed by the client organisation.
