At sweda we recognise the value of working in partnership, and already work with a range of partners on specific projects. This may be due to funding requirements or widening geographical or the range of support.
sweda has links with a range of associates and can usually find an associate with the skills necessary to help individuals, organisations and businesses in all core areas. While we have been established over 21 years we know that we do not always have to be the lead organisation for a tender or simply to create significant impact.
We are centrally based in the West Midlands and are happy to discuss partner opportunities across the UK and consider transnational projects.
The main areas of partner opportunities we are interested in are:
- Leadership and management
- Social enterprise
- Access to finance
- Workshop delivery (most business related topics)
- Training – we are a recognised centre for City and Guilds, OCR, NOCN, EdCCC and a Microsoft Academy
This list is not exhaustive so if you think there could be some benefit in working with us get in touch.
If you want to get discuss a partner opportunity, phone 0121 525 2558 and ask to speak / have a meeting with Davinder / Jackie or Tony or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
