Leadership and development funding available

Would you like up to 50% funding for coaching, leadership and development support?

If you are making, producing or assembling a product of any sort, and you're an SME in Sussex or Kent, then get in touch now with Robin Simpson, Manufacturing Growth Manager by phoning 07773 228 147 or email:

The opportunity has arisen because there's European funding via the Manufacturing Growth Programme to help grow manufacturing capacity and job creation in the UK - and mtc2 ltd are one of the approved providers.

We often think of manufacturing as light industry in this area but it can be so much more than that! In East Sussex and Kent we know of major manufacturers of a range of products from top notch double glazing, to pumps and precision instruments, to micro-breweries and perfumeries.  Did you know that  processing food and drink also counts as manufacturing and can be covered by the grant so let your imagination run riot.

How much can leadership and development funding can I get?

It very much depends on the size of the project you want to undertake.  

The financial support available can provide you with up to 35% (excl. VAT) of the cost of an improvement project  but for for projects demonstrating significant job/new product growth and higher level of applicant contribution you could get up to 50%.  

Types of projects covered include: Strategic Planning,  Change Management, People Development and  Leadership and Management, all of which are in our remit. 

Typical project values are between £3,000 to £5,000 (ex. VAT), with an average grant to a business of about £1,400. The minimum grant though is £1000 which equates to a minimum project total value of £2860.

The process is very quick and easy and all you need to do is to contact Robin saying you want mtc2 ltd to provide you with leadership and development support.  

Get in touch with Robin now as this offer is time limited!

Currently available in the South East to manufacturers based in East Sussex, Kent and Essex; as well as across 14 other Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas manufacturers can get additional support via the programme.  If you want to know more about the overall programme then go to
