Goldings grabs funding worth £120,000, March 2012

Vic Golding

Golding Computer Services underlined its ability to help businesses across the Yorkshire and Humber region save time and money on financial training by securing funding worth £120,000.

The company has allocated almost £70,000 in training more than 150 people from over 90 different businesses in Sage/International Association of Book-keepers qualifications with the support of the Skills Enhancement Fund.

The remainder of just over £50,000 is still available – but anything not allocated by the end of March will be lost.

"The subsidies have been a great success by providing opportunities for financial training at greatly-reduced costs and in a format that really meets business needs," said Vic Golding, Managing Director of Goldings.

The courses use the latest Sage 50 software and have attracted people from businesses in a range of sectors including engineering, catering, horticulture, leisure and charities.

Training is available over three levels and covers accountancy and other skills relevant to the day-to-day operation and management of any business. Participants can achieve nationally-recognised qualifications using assessment and tests rather than examinations.

Vic said: "We focus directly on the need for businesses to reduce costs and enhance performance in today’s tough economic climate.

"The format of the course reflects the fact that businesses find it difficult to allocate time for training. The subsidy addresses any concerns about budget, but funding will not always be available so it’s important that businesses seize the opportunities."
