New business support package


Truro and Penwith College has launched its new package of training and funding options for 2022 that will support employers to navigate the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit transition.

The college’s business support package has been launched inside its new Business Training Solutions guide; available to download online.

The new range of training programmes includes many that are available remotely and has been developed with Cornwall-based employers to help support the needs of local business and industry.

It will be key in supporting businesses to adapt to the changing landscape of the Covid-19 pandemic and to navigate the Brexit transition, with funding options available to ensure employers can access the training they need in the current economic climate.

Thanks to investment from the European Social Fund, Truro and Penwith College can offer businesses and individuals 50% funding for the majority of its professional development courses, including the industry-recognised ILM qualifications in leadership, management and coaching. The college also has access to funding and grants that will allow it to develop new courses and provide free pilots to help hone course content.

Hayley McKinstry, director of partnerships and apprenticeships at Truro and Penwith College commented: “We are really pleased to announce details of our new Business Support Package and launch the new 2022 Business Training Solutions brochure.

“Recent times have been very challenging for everyone, but our support is already helping the business community to adapt and recover from the pandemic while navigating the Brexit transition. The college’s commitment and support will continue throughout 2022 as we strive to ensure the year is remembered for the recovery of our resilient and vibrant business community.”
