The Growth Accelerator Leadership and Management Grant

Leadership and Management Grant is an integral part of GrowthAccelerator. It offers access to funding for training to help meet the  leadership and management needs of businesses with the potential for high growth.

How much is it worth?

Funding of up to £2,000 per individual is available with no limit on the number of senior managers in a firm able to participate. The business is required to pay 50% of the total course cost, matching the grant on a £ for £ basis (for example, if a course costs £4,000 the grant element is £2,000 and you contribute £2,000). You are responsible for payment of all VAT, which is normally reclaimable from HMRC.

Which organisations can apply? 

The grant is only available to businesses employing  less than 250 staff that are accepted onto GrowthAccelerator via a comprehensive growth potential assessment undertaken in conjunction with one of our Growth Managers.  Only businesses that have been assessed as having both the ambition, opportunity and capability to achieve high growth will be accepted.

When can I apply?

You can apply for Leadership and Management Grant any time you are on GrowthAccelerator

Which individuals are eligible?

Grant funding is available to the senior decision-maker in the  business and to  members of the senior management team and/or Board of Directors who contribute to the direction of the business.
