Funding to train small businesses


WORKING together, business specialists Fedden USP, MIT Skills and Chichester College, were recently awarded European Social Funding to deliver LEAN business training to small businesses in the area.

The Lean training helps businesses improve service levels, productivity and increase innovation, which ultimately increases bottom-line profit.

The funding will be available until July 2015.

Neil Fedden, principal consultant at Fedden USP, said: “Being awarded this funding is really good news as we can now deliver real and sustainable business benefits to SMEs in terms of improved process efficiencies, reduced lead times and improved problem solving capabilities.”

With the benefit of the funding, the course can be provided heavily-subsidised to employers with less than 250 employees, provided the delegates are aged 19 and over.
