Call for funding proposals to address the skills needs of NTCA’s residents and businesses in our Key Sectors.

The Combined Authority is delivering a range of programmes to support the medium- and long-term recovery of the NTCA economy.

Through this call we are seeking proposals for projects that address the skills and re-training needs of our residents and key economic sectors as detailed in the Call Specification.

Through this call funding is available to support projects delivering skills and qualifications that meet the needs of our residents, businesses and the skills needs of our post-Covid economy.
