Successful businesses are built around their people

Tees Valley Business is keen to help your business develop its workforce to reach their potential.

Through our key delivery partners, NBSL and Calderdale College, we offer support to businesses to develop their leadership and management capacity, as well as to upskill their workforce

Leadership and Management

The Tees Valley Business Leadership and Management Programme is part funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) and delivered by NBSL. It provides grant funding for projects that can increase the leadership and management capability and capacity of SME businesses across Tees Valley’s five boroughs.

If your business is eligible, you could get up to 40% funding towards a project costing between £2,500 and £5,000 – a grant of up to £2,000.

We can help to fund a business expert to come in and improve your flair for marketing, your dexterity for data or your knack for strategy. In fact, you can use the funding towards almost any kind of coaching or mentoring that will help your business to be managed more effectively by you and your team:

  • Developing growth strategies
  • Entering new markets
  • Preparing effectively for Brexit
  • Winning more tenders or bids
  • Creating content that stands out from the crowd
  • Improving your products, services or processes
  • Analysing data to make better business decisions
  • Attracting new clients

If you’ve got an idea for a project, but you’re not sure if it’s something we can fund, just get in touch with us – we’ll let you know and talk you through our very simple application and funding process. 

Please note if you choose to register your interest online, you will need to select the “Leadership and Management” option on the “Enquiry Details” section.”

Skills support for the workforce

Almost £7million is now available for SMEs in Tees Valley to access training.

Delivered by Calderdale College and working through a network of locally based, professional training providers, our Skills Support for the Workforce project offers fully funded training to help SMEs fill skill gaps, raise productivity and boost business growth.

We can help businesses develop and implement bespoke training programmes which will help to meet their growth ambitions by satisfying their workforce’s immediate and long term skills need.

If you are an SME based in Tees Valley, you may be eligible for free training through the Skills Support for the Workforce project. Training is funded by the European Social Fund and the Skills Funding Agency.
