Hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism businesses in Bury can now tap into subsidised leadership and management training.

Under the Train to Gain scheme, firms with five to 249 employees can obtain £1,000 per organisation. This will allow them to develop a director or senior manager — which can lead to a qualification, although not mandatory — and benefit from an in-depth skills analysis.

The training includes programmes from specialist training company Stonebow, the training division of People 1st, the sector skills council for hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism.

For details on management and leadership funding, contact Chris Jefferies on 07990 614717, or email chris.jefferies@people1st.
