Aspen Waite Ireland is delighted to welcome South Eastern Regional College (SERC) as our latest partner.  

As part of our partnership, Aspen Waite Ireland will become the R&D Tax scheme advisors for SERC, one of the largest further education colleges in the province.

Every forest comes from small acorns, and, like those forests, this new partnership is no different. Alongside the six regional colleges, SERC provides two programs, funded by the Department of Economy, Innovate Us and Skills Focus.

The aim of Innovate Us is to deliver bespoke training solutions that encourage and enable a business to bring an idea to the market through new product, service or process development. Providing between 10-60 hours of training to companies with fewer than 50 employees, the Business Development team at SERC audit the skills of the company and create a training plan bespoke to their individual needs.

The motivation behind Skills Focus is to identify upskilling opportunities to companies with under 250 employees. These courses are offered to businesses within the fields of

·      Financial, Business & Professional Services

·      Digital and Creative Industries

·      Advanced Manufacturing, Materials & Engineering

·      Life and Health Sciences

·      Agri-Food

·      Construction and Materials Handling

·      Tourism and Hospitality

The major benefits of both schemes are:

·      Training designed to meet the needs of your business.

·      Flexible training delivery, either in your workplace or at the College.

·      Increased innovation and growth within your business.

·      The opportunity to acquire accredited qualifications and a more productive, skilled workforce.

Aspen Waite Ireland look forward to enhancing the support that SERC offers to hundreds of local businesses by offering industry leading guidance on the R&D Tax Credit Scheme and many of our other services. Aspen Waite Ireland will be hosting the first in a series of webinars on the R&D Tax scheme in August, catering for companies who have gone through the programs previously. As part of the training programs offered by SERC, Aspen Waite Ireland will be offering guidance throughout the courses moving forward.

It is an exciting opportunity to be working with the best and brightest companies across the province and beyond. To find out more about Aspen Waite Ireland, please email brendan.burns@aspen-waite.co.uk and visit www.aspenwaite.co.uk
