Salford Skills for Business Apprenticeship Fund

Developed by Salford's public and private sectors, this trailblazing new fund is investing in apprenticeship training within small to medium sized organisations to help create more quality and sustainable apprenticeship roles for Salford residents.

If you are a Salford SME (up to 250 employees) who wants to employ Salford residents in long term sustainable roles through an apprenticeship we are interested in hearing from you.

We also want to hear from you if you are a SME who wants to support your existing Salford based workforce to close skills gap in key sectors including health and social care, digital, construction and manufacturing, hospitality, business and professional services.

You can apply for funding for the provision of apprenticeship training and where necessary access some support with employment costs if you meet the criteria.
