The Funded And Free Initiative

Future-Proof Your Enterprise Today with the Skills Needed for Tomorrow


Collaborate to Train Coventry and Warwickshire

Collaborate to Train is a £1.75m project that is co-funded by the ESF until .

The project has been launched to further boost the development of micro, small, or medium enterprises, across Coventry & Warwickshire.

Stratford-upon-Avon College, Coventry City Council, Coventry College, Coventry University, Warwickshire College Group, Warwickshire County Council and North Warwickshire & Hinckley College have joined together to help future-proof your organisation, by providing advice, guidance, and practical business support.

Each institution will undertake a comprehensive organisational needs analysis with you, without obligation(s), to fully understand your business’ requirements and overcome your skills demand. By working in partnership, referrals will be made to ensure that your enterprise is able to access the most appropriate training and recruitment services.

All consultations will be fully funded and free of charge for businesses, charities, and CICs with less than 250 staff, a balance sheet of less than £36m, and a turnover off less than £42m; however, if you are a larger employer then we would still like to hear from you.

Over 300 organisations have now registered with the project since its establishment in 2017!

Business Fraud

Businesses of all sizes are at risk of fraud, and many SMEs are particularly vulnerable as time and resources are often scarce. Consequences of fraud can be catastrophic for a business so being on guard is essential.

Culture of Respect

Employees who feel valued, respected and integral to your business are likely to be more productive, better team workers and less likely to leave!
