ESF Objective 3 Programme Alternative Bidding Round 13

A call for bids has been made by Government Office for the North West under the ESFi Objective 3i Programme. Round 13 is open to measures 1.2, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 5.1. Projects running between 1 July 2006 and 31 December 2007 are being requested. The deadline for submission of completed voluntary and community sector applications to North West Network is 12.00 noon 2 June 2006. Round 13 specifically seeks projects that will deliver higher level skills activity (NVQ Level 4 or above) which falls outside the remit of Co-financingi organisations. You need to ensure that your application does not cover activities detailed in LSCi or Jobcentre Plus Co-financing plans, as any applications that do so will be rejected. If it is unclear as to whether your project is eligible for this round, you should consult with the appropriate Co-financing Organisation (i.e. your local Learning & Skills Council or Jobcentre Plus) and obtain written confirmation from them that the activity falls outside their jurisdiction and forward this with your application. The only exceptions to higher level skills activity projects will for projects of a research nature under Measures 2.2 and 5.1.
