£20m management training fund to help grow SMEs

Skills Minister John Hayes has encouraged senior leaders in small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) to take advantage of a new £20m fund that will support leadership and management training to help them grow their business. 

The Leadership and Management grant is part of the Government’s move to stimulate innovation and employment, boost the economy and help develop a more cohesive society. SMEs that demonstrate potential for growth will benefit from match funding of up to £1,000, to be spent on leadership training and coaching to help grow the business, improve productivity and competitiveness.

John Hayes, Skills Minister said: “This Government will back businesses that want to boost their skills. We’re spending more than ever on apprenticeships, freeing up training providers from red tape, and focusing public spending where it is most needed to drive growth. Effective leadership can make the difference between survival and growth, and this fund will give vital support to entrepreneurs who want to continue to develop their businesses.”
