Since its launch in 2008, the Fund has: 

  • supported over 51,000 employed individuals to access accredited qualifications
  • helped in excess of 6,500 employers invest in training
  • addressed skills gaps and sectoral needs through targeted training
  • released funding for training in specific parts of the region through geographic frameworks

Companies from a wide variety of sectors and of all sizes have received support to invest in training through The Skills Enhancement Fund and have reported universally high satisfaction ratings.
