A Free-of-Charge Skills Training Solution For Your Business

The Luton Higher Level Skills Programme is a local Government-funded initiative offering fully-funded management qualifications and business skills workshops to Luton-based businesses up to the value of £2,500 per person.

Who is it for?

Businesses employing between 2 and 249 people, operating within the Luton Borough Council postcode area in key sectors including engineering, aerospace, ICT, creative and airport services/suppliers.

How does it work?

One of our Business Support Specialists will meet with you in order to complete a free Organisational Needs Analysis that will help identify the training you require. This will take approximately one hour. You then identify up to two people in your organisation that could be eligible to receive fully-funded training under this Programme.

Our Business Support Specialist may also be able to help you source additional funding for training in your business to support other staff to undertake similar training.

What training is available?

Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Qualification (Level 3)

The ILM Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Management is ideal for first line managers with a range of responsibilities including: allocating work to team members/colleagues/ contractors, achieving specific results, managing financial and physical resources and some degree of decision making. The qualification aims to give learners an opportunity to develop their management performance, become more effective and to progress their career.

Learners take three mandatory units focusing on planning and allocating work for the team, managing personal development, setting objectives and supporting team members. They then choose from a diverse range of optional units to complete the qualification, tailoring their learning to meet their individual and organisational needs.
