Greater Merseyside Learning Providers Federation (GMLPF) is the contract-managing organisation for the Liverpool City Region Provider Improvement Fund. This project is funded by the European Social Fund via the Liverpool City Region Mayoral Combined Authority.

The Provider Improvement Fund (PIF) offers a comprehensive portfolio of CPD resources and support to all LCR-based learning providers with registered offices, employees or delivery hubs located in the region.

The programme aims to improve the quality and delivery of post-16 education, enhance the relevance of learning provision (apprenticeships in particular), build the capacity of providers, develop their performance through the review of quality assurance processes, and upskill provider employees to improve the delivery of existing and future curriculum areas.

GMLPF members and other Liverpool City Region skills providers can access a range of CPD training courses, seminars and other events free of charge as part of the PIF programme.
