Accelerate Cheshire and Warrington

This £30 million pound programme has been designed to support businesses to reskill and upskill their current workforce, as we move towards a new working environment.

Every business needs to be at the forefront of talent development being more productive, taking advantage of new technologies and business practices and remain competitive in an ever changing market place.

Through the Cheshire and Warrington Accelerate programme businesses can access funding to go towards the cost of training their staff. This programme is in partnership with the University of Chester and is also partly funded by the European Social Fund.

  • To receive 100% funding – This funding is available for employees who live or work in Cheshire and Warrington for a company with under 250 members of staff.
