BUSINESSES in Bradford and across the region can now benefit from a range of funded training options through the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC).

The Higher Performing Workplaces project aims to support businesses to grow through developing internal talent.

Launched in April this year, training programmes are available with 40 per cent of the cost paid from the European Social Fund (ESF).

The project goes beyond training, offering fully-funded peer to peer group sessions and part-funded mentoring programmes to help individuals lead recovery and growth.

Small and medium-sized enterprises can book onto peer to peer group sessions via the WYCC website or on Eventbrite. The first session is on Tuesday, September 1.
