The Pathways Training Fund



The Pathways Training Fund

The Pathways Training Fund (PTF) provides grants to SMEs and Social Enterprises (inc. Community Interest Companies) in Norfolk and Suffolk. It is funded by the European Social Fund in partnership with Suffolk and Norfolk County Councils and a network of local training providers. 

The employer-led training is flexible. It aims to help businesses adapt to the changing nature of work and be more agile and competitive. 

The scheme will fund up to 75% of staff training costs for multiple employees with maximum grants of £500 per employee / £3,000 per employer. 

  • Whole qualifications, modules or units
  • Accredited or non-accredited courses
  • Extra grants for Innovation and Net Zero training later in 2022
  • Courses running until September 2023
