A new call from the European Social Fund makes up to £2m available for projects that will address in-work poverty in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  Many jobs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are seasonal, low paid or on zero hours or short-term contracts.  Underemployment is also an issue in the current economy.  Therefore, this call invites projects that will help people develop their skills so they can progress in, or move into, more secure employment.

The funding forms part of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Programme, building on Convergence funding to deliver economic regeneration for the region from 2014-2020.

This call seeks applications which will:

  • deliver a range of engagement, support, skills and qualifications that will enable individuals to progress in, or into, sustainable and economically viable work.
  • if relevant, support employers to identify and measure the benefits that will contribute towards business growth and sustainability, including future investment in skills development for their workforce.
  • create flexible learning paths which meet the needs of the individuals whilst also contributing to the strategic growth of the organisations they work for, if relevant.
  • show evidence of progression for participants, for example, additional responsibility after completing the course, higher salaries, or promotion etc.

For full details of the call, please download the call specification.

Projects developed through this call will contribute to the European Social Fund’s priorities which are to increase labour market participation, promote social inclusion and develop the skills of the potential and existing workforce.
