SDN can help you apply for traineeship funding this October
The government has now launched the new bidding process worth £65m (initial allocation) to expand the number of providers able to offer Traineeships. This is a significant opportunity for many providers, so it is worth investing in!
However, the bidding window is short (deadline 28 October) and the ESFA expect this to be a very competitive exercise, so it’s important to respond to the tender questions carefully and thoroughly.
If you are thinking of applying, and need any help with your tender response, SDN can help…
