Newlands Training was involved a couple of years ago in a very successful funding programme for women. It is being repeated now and funding is available from Lantra, if all the criteria are met. If you are interested, or know of women who would benefit, the outline details are below, followed by a link to the Lantra website for full information.
Message from Lantra…..
“Are you a woman working in the land-based and environmental sector looking for training? Do you employ women but have difficulty funding training for your staff? If so, then Lantra’s Women and Work programme could offer the solution.
Women and Work supports females seeking training in the land-based and environmental sector.* The funding is available for technical and management training, such as supervisory management, health and safety, machinery operations, first aid, IOSH, administration and first aid. Women of any age can apply for funding providing they are employed, a volunteer, undertaking an apprenticeship/traineeship or in the process of changing careers.
Training should result in demonstrable career progression, such as the acquisition of skills, obtaining a higher level job, gaining transferable skills or gaining a technical award/qualification.
Women in Work was first launched in 2010. The scheme proved to be an outstanding success and attracted women from across the UK who benefited greatly from the training they received. Read what some of the women have to say!
Training must start and finish within the period of 1 October 2014 and 20 March 2015. For further information, including details of eligibility and the application process, please contact Lantra on 02476 696 996 ext. 209 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
