COVID-19: Flexible Skills Programmes training for businesses


Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 many businesses will be forced to put on hold all face-to-face delivery and/or off-site training. This will result in running training programmes that can be delivered online for the foreseeable future. The Flexible Skills Programme (FSP) is here to support your business deliver on-line training.

The FSP is a Welsh Government funded programme that provides a financial contribution towards the upskilling of employees of businesses based in Wales.

This includes employees who have been furloughed, as a result of COVID-19.

Current programmes include:

  • advanced digital skills
  • exporting skills
  • advanced manufacturing and engineering
  • compound semiconductor cluster
  • skills gaps and upskilling in the creative sector

Under the FSP, all approved training courses will attract a 50% contribution towards the total eligible costs from the Welsh Government
