We recently met-up with Diana Mompoloki, estate director for Tresco Estate on the Isles of Scilly. Having delivered multiple regeneration programmes across the South-West, Diana appreciates European investment into Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. She urges more SMEs to take advantage of the support.
“More businesses need to take advantage of the current offering. Currently European Social Fund will fund travel for businesses on the Isles of Scilly to the Mainland and potentially the training itself. That’s a huge savings to any business and we can’t be guaranteed that it’ll be around for much longer,” says Diana.
The Skills Hub’s sole purpose is to up-skill businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, pointing SMEs to training available through ESF and other funding schemes. Local businesses can register with the Skills Hub for a free, impartial skills review here.
