The Skills Funding Agency is one of the main co-financing organisations managing European Social Funds in England. They have funding available for ESF Priority 2 (which focuses on developing a skilled and adaptable workforce) for the remainder of the 2007-2013 ESF Operational Programme.

The Skills Funding Agency is planning to issue invitations to tender on November 14th for the delivery of ESF funded provision to provide skills support for the workplace through apprenticeships and related workplace learning from April 2013.

The Agency will only issue invitations to tender to those organisations which are on the Register of Training Organisations on 14th November. The Agency has now re-opened the register application process. The closing date for applications is 5pm on 1st October.

Network for Europe is holding a series of briefing events in September 2012.
