Full- and part-funding for management training in the North East

Employers in the North East have been chosen to pioneer a new initiative which could open the door to £4m of full- and part-funding for management training being offered to employers up and down the UK.

All employers in the North East – regardless of size and sector – are able to claim up to £1,000 of fully funded training towards courses and then up to an additional £59,000 of funding on a matched-funding basis. Funding can be used towards any of the open management training courses provided by Impellus, who are in negotiations to roll the programme out nationally.

The initiative is being explored as the Funded Training Budget, which has offered matched funding for management training, comes to an end this August.

Impellus managing director, Jon Dean, says, ‘With much government focus currently on apprenticeships this would be a welcome boost for employers who see developing the skills of their managers as key to improving productivity and performance’.


Claiming funding

Employers in the North East can claim their funding for management training when making bookings over the phone. All Impellus management and leadership courses can be booked with the funding. A £59 +VAT administration fee is payable by credit card on successful funding application.

Funding is applied immediately – there is no requirement to pay in full and claim back.

Here are upcoming courses running in Newcastle. Courses in all locations qualify and all courses on all dates can be chosen. Bookings however, must be complete before the end of August.
