The Pathways Training Fund aims to help firms adapt to the changing nature of work and be more resilient to the pressures facing business. That is why the scheme will fund areas that combine to offer skills businesses need to remain agile and competitive.

Up to 75% of staff training costs for multiple employees will be covered, with maximum grants of £500 per employee / £3,000 per employer.


  • Whole qualifications, modules or units
  • Accredited or non-accredited courses
  • Courses running until September 2023.
