Business Training Funding in the UK
The PUSH Academy for Business is an Independent Learning & Development Provider. It offers an alternative to traditional academic University study, where training and education in the areas of Business Marketing and Sales, tends to be focused on the theoretical elements of marketing. If you’re looking for business training funding please read on.
The PUSH Academy operates in direct partnership with a live Marketing Business Consultancy that applies the tactics and strategies it teaches in the real business environment.
Over recent years the opportunity to access grant funded training in the East has diminished considerably. However there are possible routes to gain grants for business and marketing training.
PLEASE NOTE: The PUSH Academy does not promote the offer of ‘free training courses’ through Government funding.
We provided part-funded placements on our Marketing Foundation Course here in Norwich, Norfolk, through the Regional Enterprise Initiative.
