The Government has doubled the funding for the Train to Gain scheme to help employers get high quality training and meet their skills needs.

More funding will be offered for a broader range of skills. Part funding will now be available for those doing a second full Level 2 qualification.

The funding cap will be lifted for the best providers, enabling them to do more business as their performance improves.

The National Employer Service will be expanded while skills brokerage will also be extended to help provide more companies with specialist support.
