Walney Extension Skills Fund

Introduction and Background

It is widely recognised that the UK will have a shortage of technical and engineering skills needed to meet the UK’s future employment needs. With this in mind, each year, up to £100,000 of the main Walney Extension Community Fund will be set aside for a “STEM Educational Fund”.

The aim is to provide educational and learning opportunities for people within the Fund’s benefit area, to help to improve their skills and employment opportunities.

The 2024 STEM Educational Fund is now closed to applications.

The 2024 application deadline has now passed and further applications are not being accepted at this time.
Decisions on the 2024 STEM Fund will be announced by the end of June 2024.
