GMLPF Challenge Investment Fund

In July 2014, GMLPF launched The GMLPF Challenge Investment Fund as part of its drive to support ongoing development of the region’s skills by investing in the long term future of its members – local training providers. The initiative was designed to particularly encourage:

The Challenge Investment Fund presented an exciting opportunity for GMLPF members to bid for funding for projects that test new approaches and methodologies for increasing the participation and achievements of learners.
