Business Mentoring Pilot Project applications now open

07 August 2018

The EDF Renewables Corriemoillie Education and Training Fund has been successfully helping residents in the areas surrounding the Corriemoillie windfarm to access training and education for the last eighteen months.

The Fund has now set aside cash to help local businesses who want the support of a mentor. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees in the community council areas of Contin; Garve and District; Lochbroom; Marybank, Scatwell and Strathconon; and Strathpeffer can apply. The business must have been trading for two years.

Awards of up to £4,000 are available under this pilot scheme. This can cover the costs of a mentor’s time and expenses such as travel and accommodation.

Bea Jefferson, the Fund coordinator said: “We have kept the application process simple. We want to hear from businesses what difference having a mentor will make for them – and that can be done in writing, or in another way, such as recording a short video on a phone. We only have two awards available under this pilot project during this funding round, but if it’s successful, we will have more awards in future.”

Nick Bradford, Head of Asset Management at EDF Renewables said “We would encourage businesses to put in an application for a mentoring award. Drawing on the expertise of an external mentor can really help a business to grow in confidence and skills.”

The closing date for applications is 27th August 2018.
