Last Chance to cash in on Leadership and Management training
Lamont Pridmore is urging small and medium-sized businesses not to miss out on government cash to improve in-house leadership and management skills – and is offering expert help to claim the funding and provide the training.
The Leadership and Management Advisory Service (LMAS) offers a grant of up to £1,000 for owners and senior managers of businesses and social enterprises with the potential for fast and significant growth.
The grant will pay for up to 50 per cent of training fees, up to a maximum of £1,000, excluding VAT. It must be used for leadership and management training to develop the applicant’s skills, so that they can grow their business by maximising the contributions of staff.
Lamont Pridmore is offering support to help obtain LAMAS funding, including how to demonstrate the potential for growth, which is required as part of the application process. The firm can also provide leadership and management coaching, mentoring or training.
Only one grant claim can be made per organisation. To apply for the funding, the organisation must have at least one full-time employee, in addition to the person making the application, but fewer than 250 employees.
If it has fewer than 50 employees, the applicant must be the managing director, owner or chief executive. Organisations can apply for funding in areas including:
- developing effective leadership and management skills;
- involving your workforce in the planning and creative process;
- planning and developing the organisation of your company in the most effective way;
- Encouraging and managing high performance among employees.
Training must be approved before 28 February 2012 and must be completed by 31 March this year.
The LMAS funding could provide a real boost to help businesses kick-start growth and we would encourage eligible firms to take advantage of this support.
