As part of the UK Futures Programme the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) and Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have launched a new opportunity to improve business performance in the retail and hospitality industries.

In response to the challenge of low income workers, costly retention, recruitment and skills gaps, UKCES and DWP are looking to co-invest up to £250,000 per successful proposal to develop employer-led solutions from firms or groups of companies of all sizes.

If you are an employer in the retail or hospitality sectors who would benefit from progressing and retaining your workforce, this UK Futures Programme competition presents a valuable opportunity.  To find out more about this competition please consult the competition brief on GOV.UK.  You can also find out more about the UK Futures Programme on the overview page.

If you would like to register your interest for this competition, and receive access to the application form, please register using this form (link now closed). The closing date for proposals is Friday 28th November.

The UK Futures Programme is administered by UKCES.  It offers opportunities for businesses across the UK to develop innovative solutions to long-standing or emerging skills issues that are restricting business performance. UKCES is a publicly funded, industry-led organisation that offers guidance on skills and employment issues in the UK.

Please do not hesitate to contact the enquiries line if you have any questions.
