Funding for courses under the Qualification and Credit Framework

This is a fantastic opportunity for you, as employers, to access funding support for staff learning and development. All of you who submitted Workforce Plans for this funding should be able to claim the amounts you requested; plus the partnership should be able to increase membership and therefore benefit more local employers.
