This project is receiving £641,185 of funding from the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Founds Growth Programme in England.

Funded training will be available from Truro and Penwith College and Digital Peninsula Network to upskill their staff as well as the opportunity to take on an apprentice being trained in the digital marketing or IT skills they need.

Martin Tucker, Director of Penwith College and Chairman of Penzance Regeneration Partnership, says:

"We look forward to supporting the development of new training opportunities and their subsequent delivery. The College has a proven record in delivering outstanding training and education and supporting the business community of Cornwall."

The opportunities are significant and we look forward to engaging with as many employers as possible to grow their opportunities with digital skills.
