Yorkshire businesses offered funding towards multi-award-winning management programme!

Businesses in Yorkshire can now take advantage of funding towards a multi-award-winning management skills training programme proven to increase employee performance and business growth.

Designed to transform anyone with line management responsibility into a leader who drives engagement and productivity, STAR® Manager has been delivered to managers and leaders in over 40 countries worldwide. The programme is designed by UK-based performance improvement consultancy Notion, established in 2000 by Dominic and Laura Ashley-Timms.

Available in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley, micro, small or medium-sized businesses will receive 50-60% of the funding towards the programme, provided by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA). The scheme will be delivered by its SkillsBank – a fund designed to provide financial support to businesses towards the cost of upskilling the workforce to achieve business growth.

The STAR® Manager programme focuses on providing new knowledge and skills for thriving in the ever-changing workplace of today. It enables managers to adopt an enquiry-led approach, which encourages them to move beyond the traditional command-and-control model and become ‘enablers’ of their team members, with impressive business results.

In a major UK government study, independently evaluated by the London School of Economics, STAR® Manager was shown to significantly improve staff retention, as well as increasing employee engagement and productivity by almost 50%. Those who complete the programme will receive a Level 3, Level 4 or Level 5 management qualification or global certification in Operational Coaching®.

Organisations eligible for funding must have either: 1-249 staff and an annual turnover of less than £40 million or have over 250 staff and an annual turnover greater than £40 million.
