It will work in partnership with 8 end to end delivery partners and 45 specialist spot purchase partners that have been selected to offer specialist services to address the multiple and complex participant needs.

EU Growth Programme 2014 – 2020
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Programme is the European economic regeneration programme for the region. Running from 2014-2020 it will contribute to the EU ambition to deliver smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The CIoS Growth programme is made up of two main funding streams, one of which is European Social Fund (ESF), which is about supporting people and is the fund into which the Learning Partnership has and will continue to bid. It is worth £166m, which is 25% of the whole programme for CIoS. There will be a mixture of co-funded and open calls.
The co-funding organisations, this time called ‘Opt Ins’, are The Big Lottery, DWP and the SFA. The first calls have now gone out and the call timetable is shown here, although it should be noted that this is a working document which is constantly being revised, so is indicative only.
