Norfolk Training Services provides training and employer services that are funded by the Government through different pathways:
- As a Skills Funding Agency-registered (SFA) provider, we have access to a large Apprenticeship contract. Only SFA-registered providers can deliver Apprenticeships. The SFA funds the training element of Apprenticeships which entail Apprentices of all ages gaining nationally-recognised qualfications. Entering into an Apprenticehips Agreement will result in your staff gaining training valued at many thousands of pounds.
- The AGE Grant, which pays £1500 to employers who take on an Apprentice, is only available from SFA-registered providers.
- The Work Programme is funded by the Government through the Department for Work and Pensions. When Norfolk Training Services helps employers to recruit a potential employee from its database of candidates, that service is paid for by the Governement.
- Grants available from DWP to employers who take on unemployed people can be accessed through Norfolk Training Services.
