Following the successful Enterprise Adviser Pilot (14/15) and first full year delivery phase (15/16), led by Sheffield City Council (SCC) on behalf of Sheffield Combined Authority (SCR), the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority (SCR) has secured involvement in the next phase of delivery (EAN - Enterprise Adviser Network) from 1st September, 2016 to 31st August, 2017 and subject to satisfactory performance this may continue to August, 2018 (2 academic years) but this will be subject to a further agreement.
The grant will fund 1.75 FTE enterprise coordinator posts and other programme expenditure.
Please note that programme has already started and expenditure has been incurred as the grant is from September 2016. This is because SCR decided late in the proceedings to manage the grant themselves and expenditure was incurred in order to maintain the stability of the programme from the previous year.
SCC has now been advised by SCR, who will manage the funding for this phase, that it will receive £50,652 plus a further £8,750 incentive payment following confirmation of 100% of the school/colleges/special schools being matched with an Enterprise Adviser for the period 1st September, 2016 to 31st August, 2017 to manage activity in Sheffield. The Council will provide match funding at 50% being £25,326.
Approval is being sought for SCC to sign the grant funding agreement with the SCR for £50,652 (plus £8,750 incentive payment) for the period 1st September, 2016 to 31st August, 2017.
