New funding up to the value of £1,000 is now available for Leadership and Management development. The aim of the LMAS is to foster the leadership and management skills of senior staff so they can make full use of their workforce and accelerate the growth of their business.

To be eligible, your business must be in England and have:

  • two to 250 full-time equivalent employees
  • the potential for high or fast growth
