Hello, I am trying to get my employer to sponsor my progression from an electrical HNC to HND. I was wondering if anyone knows if, as the title states, there are any benefits to the employer? Apart from having more competent staff, can they claim anything from the government? Any grants or similar? A couple of Google searches turned up very little useful information, and I was wondering if any of you have been in a similar situation. I am in the UK. Thanks in advance for any information.
