Apprenticeship support available to businesses

Small businesses in Uckfield can benefit from new support for apprenticeship training.

Following a successful application to the European Social Fund, East Sussex County Council will also be providing match funding meaning up to £600,000 is available for up to two years, with a potential third year extension with £300,000 funding from the Council.

The match funding from the Apprenticeship Levy will help small and medium sized enterprises across East Sussex.

Working with Sussex Council of Training Providers (SCTP), the Council is planning to engage with at least 150 businesses from sectors where there are shortages in employment growth and future skills. Sectors including Construction, Digital, Engineering, Health and Social Care will receive support to help increase apprenticeships, traineeships and skills training.
