ERDF Calls

£1.3m ESF Funding Opportunity

On 5th October on behalf of the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership, the Government launched a £1.3m call for activities under European Social Fund Programme 2014-20.

One or more applications are sought to help retain graduates in Leicester and Leicestershire by  encouraging more job opportunities with higher skill requirements. These opportunities are sought across all of our key sectors.

Funding will also be granted to initiatives that improve opportunities available to graduates through placements, work experience and higher level apprenticeships. The call is open to all SMEs in Leicester and Leicestershire. For a copy of the specification go to ESF Skills for Growth or to find out more contact Fiona Baker at the LLEP at
