  • advanced manufacturing
  • tourism and leisure
  • professional and business services
  • digital and creative
  • health and social care
  • construction
  • retail
  • education
  • logistics and distribution

The total funding paid will amount to 50% of the total premises venue hire costs up to a maximum of £1,000 subject to availability of funding. The funding can only be paid for the number of sessions the groups meets and there must be a clear focus on learning for the group to qualify for funding.
