Branch out in STEM
Discover our fully funded courses designed for employees of SMEs operating in the STEM sectors to develop their skills in areas relevant to their specific roles, as well as those areas that also provide a direct benefit to the business as a whole.
The Branch out in STEM project is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and supports employees of SMEs to access free bespoke, employer-led training, career coaching and advice to up-skill their employees in vocational and high-level technical skills.
£1,500 graduate talent grants
For SMEs operating in the STEM industries and looking to bring new talent into their business, we can offer a talent grant to support employing a graduate.
You can receive £1,500 towards a graduate's salary for a placement of up to 12 weeks. Find out about how we can support you to recruit graduates into your business.

We particularly aim to support employees aged 50+, employees with disabilities, Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff, and those who have previously missed out on traditional educational opportunities
