We believe that improving the educational attainment and developing the skills of Essex residents strengthens businesses and provides entrepreneurs and employees with skills vital for business competitiveness and professional development. In short it one of the best ways of growing our economy, thereby improving people's quality of life.

Training Courses

There are a number of training opportunities and opportunities for part-funding of training programmes available to companies within Essex. Further information on securing funding for training can be found on the Funding for Business page.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships provide excellent opportunities for businesses and academic institutions to share expertise and develop innovative and fruitful approaches to business. A knowledge transfer partnership involves at least one graduate working for a period of between one and three years with a company, helping to deliver a project central to the needs of the company whilst drawing on knowledge and expertise from the academic institution.
