Black Country high value manufacturing (HVM) companies can benefit from subsidised training support through the Black Country Skills Factory and bite-size courses taking place in March and April 2015 (subject to availability).
Skills Factory project funding will officially come to an end in March 2015. To qualify for subsidy support, all courses must be booked by 31 March 2015. Although we will still be brokering courses beyond this point; it is unlikely that subsidies will still be available for companies. Please call Colin Parker on 07944 268709 if you have any concerns.
