Announcement : Skills Passport - Funded Grant For Training & Equipment
The Skills Passport Grant was devised to offer the wider community in Perth & Kinross funding for training courses which are unobtainable by any other means, in order to help them with their journey back into employment or business start-up. The grant offers financial support for training courses and essential equipment to enable individuals to overcome barriers to employment or sustaining better employment opportunities.
Up to £2,000 can be acquired for training and/or equipment including tablet devices, laptops and work tools. To ensure funding is allocated responsibly, individuals will be required to provide realistic evidence of the enhanced employment opportunity within their application.
All residents in Perth & Kinross who are currently unemployed and have lived in the area for 3 months or more are eligible for funding. All applications will be considered.
