New Funding Available for Management Training

Yorkshire and the Humber Leadership and Management Specialist Advisory Service

The Leadership and Management Advisory Service (LMAS) is funded by the Skills Funding Agency (in England only) to support senior leaders to enhance their business-building and leadership skills with the aim of fostering business growth.


Businesses must be able to demonstrate the potential for high or fast growth. This is defined as either:

  • An existing business that can be expected to increase turnover by 20% or more for each of the next 3 years
  • A new business (less than 1 year old) that can be expected to reach a turnover of £500,000 or more in three year’s time The Government estimates that around 10% of all businesses can meet these criteria.
  • The beneficiaries of the Service should be businesses/organisations employing between 2 and 249 full-time equivalent employees in the Yorkshire and Humber region (i.e. Yorkshire, Humberside, North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire). Businesses from outside the region will be referred to the appropriate regional contractor.
  • For organisations employing less than 50 staff, only the owner, CEO or equivalent can access the funding. For organisations employing 50-249 staff, key directors/key managers who report directly to the most senior person and have strategic responsibility for the business are also eligible.
