The European Structural and Investment Funds programme provides funds to help local areas grow. The funds support investment in innovation, businesses, skills and employment and create jobs.
York College is pleased to be a delivery partner in three of the recently announced European Social Fund (ESF) and Skills Funding Agency funded projects which support local Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership region.
These ESF funded projects will run until March 2018 as a minimum and support SMEs, companies with less than 250 employees, within the sectors of Agritech, Bio Economy, Construction, Engineering, Health and Social Care, Voluntary/Community and Visitor Economy. Support will be offered to employees, aged 19 and over under one of the funded projects.
