about the
esf business clusters project

ESF Business Clusters is part-funded by the European Social Fund. The project has a target of engaging with and supporting at least 580 SME and micro-businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly before it concludes in December 2023. The Business Clusters partners work with a wide range of organisations to determine their workforce skills needs and co-design and pilot new training programmes to enhance the industry-relevance of the local educational offer.

“What I liked most about this conference was the variety of speakers who gave short bursts about such interesting topics, and also being able to meet face to face and the value of networking. A big thank you to all those that organised the event, a lot of hard work went into making it so successful!”
