Scaffolding trade body NASC is urging member firms to come forward and claim £180,000 available in free training cash.
The NASC has already handed out £120,000 in the last year to help more than 30 firms with staff training.
The cash can be used to subsidise courses by up to £200 a session.
NASC President, David Brown said: “We launched this training fund to assist businesses in their No.1 issue of 2022/2023 – recruitment and training up new staff, to support their growing businesses.
“And it’s fantastic to see 30+ businesses benefiting from the funding – with £120k now committed by the end of the year. And now there’s even more support available for our members, with increases in COTS & MHFA course pay outs.
“But there’s still a big pot of money available for members to utilise and we would encourage those who have not yet claimed to make use of the training pot whilst it’s active.”
NASC CEO, Clive Dickin added: “Training is critical to the development of your scaffolding and access contracting business, NASC members through their membership can access training grants ensuring they can build a dynamic team.
“Please get in touch with NASC for any assistance in claiming your grants and supporting your training needs in these critical times.”
