New Anglia Skills Deals Programme – This £2m pot from Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils can provide up to 50% co-funding for projects that aim to raise skill levels in the adult workforce, create jobs and drive enterprise and economic growth in Norfolk and Suffolk by addressing a gap in the local training provision offer or a barrier to accessing it.

Sector Skills Plans – Our Sector Skills Plans will identify key priorities for each of the key growth and employment sectors in our area. The plans will identify the main skills needs of the sectors as well as a set of agreed actions to help ensure these needs are met. An evidence base/dataset upon which these plans are based are also available to view. To view completed plans and evidence bases please click here.

Capital funding for skills projects – Further and higher education projects benefit from capital funding through our Growth Deal. You can find out more about our Growth Deal and the projects it has funded here.
