Strand Two of Digital Talent Funding Now Open

13 June 2017

We are very pleased to invite applications to strand 2 of the Mayor of London’s Digital Talent programme. There is a total of £500,000 available for a revenue grant funding contribution toward the costs to setup and deliver new, non-accredited ‘bootcamp’ (8-24 weeks) training opportunities for 18-24 year olds living in London. Capital funding is also available to support delivery costs.

The deadline for applications is 10 July 12:00 NOON. Late submissions will not be accepted.

In order to apply please read the Statement of Requirements on www.london.gov.uk/digitaltalent and submit the following completed documents:

  • Application Form

  • Delivery and Costs Template

  • Delivery Plan and Risks Template

  • Due Diligence Documentation

Any award of grant funding will be made on the GLA’s standard grant funding terms, a copy of which is set out as a related document on the webpage. The terms are non-negotiable.

Please note this funding round relates to a bespoke part of the total strand 2 package and is funded and managed solely by the GLA, via the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP). A separate applications process led by the European Social Fund team for £2million will open within the next few weeks. Applicants are welcome to apply for both funding opportunities but will need to complete two differing sets of paperwork and should be mindful that reporting and monitoring will also differ for both.

Please email any queries and submissions to digitaltalent@london.gov.uk.  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) will be published and regularly updated on the above website during the applications period.
