In preparation for developing projects using European Social Fund, the Board has produced an overview of the work it seeks to bring forward in the first phase.

The attached document was handed out at the Board meeting of 6th May 2015, held at Siemens, Teal Park, Lincoln.

The Board has previously agreed that it will 'opt-in' to the services and match funding offered by the Skills funding Agency, DWP and Big Lottery, leaving around £10m of its £45m total ESF allocation for direct bids. (Figures approximate, subject to the exchange rate).
