Many businesses within the construction industry are eligible to receive funding for training purposes. But, if you do not know much about the schemes available or how to apply then you could be left in the dark.

Which is why we are holding our Bitesize Event where you will learn all about training scheme funds and how your business can benefit. The talk will be headed by Lorraine Kirbitson who runs the North Yorkshire Construction Training Group (NYCTG).

The morning will involve a presentation followed by a Q & A session with Lorraine and will include topics such as accessing training schemes and aiding apprentices.
