Potential funding may be available to you as a trainee wishing to undertake training or as an employer wishing to train up potential new members of staff.

To be eligible you generally have to be unemployed for at least a year and if the cost is over £500 it helps if you have an employer behind you willing to offer a job upon completion. There are other circumstances where you would be automatically eligible (i.e. barriers including homelessness, drug & alcohol misuse), plus anyone aged 18-24 is automatically eligible.

Arbortec has been made aware of this funding opportunity by our local employment support office, Network Personnel, which has branches across Northern Ireland. You may approach them directly in branch or via their website
