50% Funding for Training Courses in Wales

If you’re in the Welsh engineering or manufacturing sector, you could be getting 50% off training courses for your team before March 2023.

As part of the Flexible Skills Programme, businesses across Wales can benefit from Welsh Government funding to train their employees in areas that bring increased revenue, productivity, and efficiency to their organisation.

We’re working with companies to keep costs down, by helping them apply for Welsh Government funding for their next training course.

How much can you claim?

You can claim up to £25,000 for training to upskill your workforce. With 20 years’ experience in the industry, we’re adept at applying for funding, to make sure you get everything you’re entitled to.

A training provider with over 55 years of expertise, we’re here to help you get the most out of your experience, offering extra support should you need it. Local businesses have relied on us for decades to deliver funded training to their team and remove barriers to further education, giving plenty of participants the opportunity to expand their horizons.

“Welsh businesses should definitely make the most of this opportunity before March 2023,” says Gareth Harris, Director of Corporate Relations. “With so many options available for manufacturing and engineering firms, this is the perfect time to upskill your team and fill any skills gaps you’ve uncovered within your workforce.”

The financial support available from the Welsh Government can help to support your team’s continuing professional development, teaching them new skills, and increasing their job opportunities within their industry.

Funding from the Welsh Government

In April 2022, the Economy Minister announced a further £4.5 million for the Flexible Skills programme to support a growing workforce in Wales.

After a tumultuous few years, the government is doing its best to put funding in place that will help individuals to hone technical and transferable skills.

A success story in Treherbet

When Everest Windows in Treherbet, South Wales, was brought out of administration during the Covid-19 pandemic, it was clear that something had to change to keep the business afloat.

Using the 50% funding opportunity, Plant Manager Jim Collins worked with us to proceed with the application process and implement training that would help the team to work in a more streamlined manner.

The training delivered included upskilling employees in management development, leadership, and lean manufacturing principles, resulting in a highly engaged workforce, who were able to work together effectively.

“Straightaway, we saw 66% productivity improvement,” Collins said. “That was an expectation of £280,000 a week…going to over £400,000. Better flow and a more engaged workforce.”

As a result of the benefits the business has felt, Everest Windows is working with TSW Training on future programmes to develop the staff and improve company revenue even further.

50% funding is now available

Welsh companies that want to take advantage of the fantastic 50% funding offer should contact us to discuss options for their learning programmes.

You’ll have until March 2023 to complete your training course and will receive 50% funding from the Welsh Government once all learners have finished their qualifications.

The team can walk you through the application process and ensure you get the right training to suit your business needs.
