Advice & Help Centre

Training and development is an investment. But isn’t everything in business? It’s good to know that there are always new schemes and grants, funding options and claw-backs to make it more affordable.

We work in connection with both Government and local authorities who look to support businesses through supporting their staff training and recruitment.

Grants to support staff training, recruitment, capital investment on buildings and equipment are often available to local employers.

West Suffolk College will help advise your organisation if any grants are available and work with you to ensure you have all the details required.

Current Grants and Funding

Apprenticeship Levy

The taxman giveth, but not until he hath taken away… This is a tax initially, but the money you pay is held in a training account to spend on Apprenticeships.

Find out more about the Levy and how to use it.

Traineeship funding

When you employ trainees, the government funds the classroom training they receive.
