InnovateUs is a fully funded skills development programme which offers a unique, tailored training solution for small businesses. Funded by the Department for the Economy, the programme's aim is to deliver bespoke training solutions that encourage and enable a business to bring an idea to the market through new product, service or process development.

InnovateUs provides between 10-60 hours of fully funded training to companies with fewer than 50 employees. A member of the Business Development team will meet with you to discuss your company’s needs and complete a short skills audit. A bespoke training plan will then be created and delivered to your employees. 

Training solutions are available in a wide range of skill areas, for example, Belfast Met has provided bespoke training solutions around software development, 3D CAD, materials and textile manufacturing, product prototyping and composites moulding. The scope is wide - what skills do your company need to innovate and grow?  

Benefits to employers:
  • Training designed to meet the needs of your business
  • Flexible training delivery, either in your workplace or at the College
  • Increased innovation and growth within your business
  • The opportunity to acquire accredited qualifications and a more productive, skilled workforce
