Funding available for SMEs in Solent region of UK

Fedden USP : 04 March, 2014  (Application Story)
Gosport-based Lean business specialists Fedden USP working in conjunction with MIT Skills and Chichester College, has recently been awarded European Social Funding to deliver LEAN business training to SMEs in the Solent area.

This funding will be available until July 2015 and is currently open to enquiries from suitable candidates.

On successful completion of the training, candidates receive a nationally recognised Certificate in Business Improvement Techniques (LEAN) Level 2 qualification.

As Neil Fedden, Principal Consultant at Fedden USP explains: “Being awarded this funding is really good news as we can now deliver real and sustainable business benefits to SMEs in terms of improved process efficiencies, reduced lead times and improved problem solving capabilities. It’s not unusual for a business to see potential savings of £50,000 from the LEAN training we are delivering.”

The training course runs over a 14 week period, the timing of which can be suited to fit in with the timescales required by a company. It consists of a 5 day LEAN Workshop spread over the 14 weeks. In parallel with this the delegate runs an improvement project within their own business supported by two mentoring visits by one of Fedden’s LEAN Consultants.

The course can be run in-company providing there is a minimum of 10 people on the course; for companies who cannot commit these numbers, Fedden will be holding a series of open courses at various locations and dates.

With the benefit of the funding, the course can be provided heavily subsidised to employers with less than 250 employees, provided the delegates are aged 19+
