We can support skills development opportunities by awarding clients up to £1000 + a contribution towards Travel & Childcare expenses if required. Please note that due to restrictions from our funders, we can only support you in accessing face-to-face/in-person courses and training provision that is delivered in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. Online courses and training provision can be sourced from providers anywhere in the world.
The content of your skills development course can be anything from a course provided by an established organisation, to tailored one-to-one sessions with a specialist. You can apply for courses or training which develop your practice, your business, or you yourself – but any course you apply for needs to provide a tangible benefit to the operation and future development of your business.
Previously, clients have applied to develop creative skills such as improving techniques associated with their practice, attending project management and partnership working courses for developing their business strategically, or participating in self-development courses to help them overcome personal issues such as anxiety around public speaking.
