GMColleges is expanding innovation across the region.

What is theGreater Manchester Further Education Innovation Programme?

The programme, which has been funded by Innovate UK through its Further Education Innovation Fund, aims to increase the role of Further Education Colleges in the expansion of innovation support to improve productivity across Greater Manchester.

Innovation across industry

Our nine General Further Education colleges have been collectively awarded £2.5m to increase innovation support to businesses throughout the city region.

Several new initiatives will be introduced via the project such as creating an Innovation Centre in every Greater Manchester borough, where our new Business Innovation Advisors and Business Innovation Coordinators will be based. These centres will engage and support local employers to build their innovation journey and establish colleges as places where businesses can connect with each other and the support they need to increase productivity.

Become part of our team

There are exciting new roles across Greater Manchester to deliver this initiative.
