Accelerate Cheshire and Warrington is a new £30M programme that has been designed to support businesses to reskill and upskill their current workforce – particularly in digital and STEM-related skills.

We are acutely aware of the difficulties many businesses will be experiencing now. It may be that your support team is now based at home or you may be looking at different ways to sell products and services online.

The Accelerate programme can support with training for employees to get up to speed with online platforms and digital skills. We have pulled together a list of the leading free online learning material and training available to help your business adapt to the unfolding challenges.

Through the Cheshire and Warrington LEP’s Accelerate programme you can get funding for 40% of the cost of the training your business needs. Every business needs to be at the forefront of talent development so you can be more productive, take advantage of new technologies and business practices and remain competitive. And that will help us all towards a stronger local economy during recovery from this situation.


There is no restriction on the size of your business, but your employees must live or work within the Cheshire and Warrington area.
