Potential Funding Support for Seafood
Training – but we need your support!
The Seafood Training Academy is seeking funding from the National
Skills Academy for Food manufacturing to support seafood training
A number of programmes have been identified (see below) and
if we are successful the limited funding will be on a first
come, first served basis.
So what do we need from you and other seafood employers?
To put it simply we need your commitment. We will be
unsuccessful in our bid for funding unless we can identify enough
employers for at least 50% of the places available.
What do we mean by commitment? This is not
a binding agreement, all we ask is that those employers who
are interested in a particular programme and have a reasonable
expectation that they will want to put some of their staff on
the course in 2011 tell us. We will want to add the company
name and potential trainee numbers to support our bid.
What happens if you change your mind after we get the funding?
If at a later date, the programme is inconvenient for you, for
any reason, then you can withdraw some or all of your trainees
and there will be no problems. You may even wish to increase
the numbers you want to go on a programme, and subject to availability
that may be possible.
What is available? The programmes for which
we have asked for funding are listed below. If successful then
funding will be for up to 50% of the invoiced course costs,
excluding any travel or accommodation requirements. Funding
is only available for seafood employers who have trainees based
in England and who will complete one of the listed programmes
All of the programmes will lead to a nationally recognised
qualification and will be delivered by an approved trainer.
If we are successful and can establish a track record for this
type of funding bid then there will be other opportunities to
access more funding in the future. So now is your chance to
help us to help you.
If you are interested in any of the programmes simply email
me with your details. To find out more about an individual programme
please give me a call. And, if possible we need your feedback
by the 26th August 2010.
