Future Skills NOW

What is Future Skills NOW? 

Future Skills NOW is a partnership between Norfolk County Council and North Norfolk District Council. We aim to identify the skills and training requirements of businesses based within North Norfolk. By addressing these skills barriers, we will assist continued growth for businesses and success for the region. 

How Does it Work? 

A dedicated Business Skills Coordinator will support interested businesses. They will conduct a Skills Audit to identify any workforce training requirements. The Business Skills Coordinator will suggest courses or providers that might be able to assist. You can use any training provider if they meet the project criteria. 

Who could get funding? 

The project is for businesses that have 250 employees or fewer. It could fund accredited and non-accredited training courses. The project funds costs of each course, up to 75%, with a maximum of £1,250 per employee with a 25% employer contribution. 

How can employers get involved?  

Contact us on if you are:

  • Looking to upskill your workforce or have identified any training requirements
  • Are based in North Norfolk

Our Business Skills Coordinator will then get in touch and make an appointment with you. They will come and see you to discuss your requirements. 

What to do next? 

If your business could benefit from taking part in the project, please get in touch with us. We will happily assist you and answer any queries or concerns you might have.  


Our Business Skills Coordinator can also:

  • Link you into industry-related activities within the region
  • Connect you to:
    • Countywide or regional projects 
    • Employment support programs
    • Funding opportunities

We have a host of support available, so do ask us what's on offer. Let's build the future together.
