The Green Entrepreneurs Programme is Derbyshire County Council’s £2 million response to national and local low carbon and alternative energy priorities, endeavouring to ensure the county is at the cutting edge of development and technology facilitating national demonstrator initiatives, small grants fund and a fully funded scholarship fund.

The scholarship fund is to support individuals train for new ‘green’ jobs and ‘greening’ of existing ones that translate to new skill sets. The scholarship grants will allow individuals to study around their existing responsibilities. It will enable them to obtain the skills and qualifications they need to change their career or progress in employment. The study can take place either online or face to face or a combination of both. Course fees up to £1,500 can be applied for.
