The fund was set up to enable large levy registered businesses to invest in developing the leadership, management or supervisory skills of their staff, and to identify key areas of training that could be supported by the grants scheme in the future.

The competitive fund attracted bids for in-house training programmes with requests to better understand the training needs of the organisation, or develop new approaches, as well as delivery. A number of the successful bids will also develop programmes that work with supply chains.

The areas for action vary among projects, ranging from recruitment and retention, to productivity improvement, and diversity.

Other firms to secure funding include ISG, Barratt, Berkeley, Bouygues and Sir Robert McAlpine.
