Employer Ownership of Skills (EOS) Fund Workshop


FREE event


FDF's Competitiveness Steering Group is currently considering the possibility of developing a second phase to FDF's highly successful Apprenticeship Pledge, trebling the number of apprenticeships offered across the sector. Members agreed that there could be an opportunity to develop an industry standard apprenticeship programme and focus on higher-level apprenticeships.

The Government's Employer Ownership of Skills (EOS) fund encourages collaboration between groups of employers to tackle significant problems in their sector and/or supply chain. The Government is particularly keen for proposals that aim to raise skills, create jobs, and drive enterprise and economic growth.

The next round of bidding opened in late 2012. FDF will therefore host a meeting with the National Skills Academy for food and drink on Wednesday 30th January from 10.30 – 13.00 at FDF offices in London to discuss possible ideas for a food industry bid under the EOS fund. We are calling on members to participate in this workshop.
