SiSo Access Pass

Broadening knowledge and learning new skills are vital components for staying competitive and enhancing personal growth; but the cost of attending events, conferences or workshops which can help you gain these insights, can put a lot of people off signing up.

The SiSo Access Pass helps people working in Dorset’s creative and digital sector to overcome these cost barriers. Subsidised by the European Regional Development Fund, the fund can help a company pay for tickets to allow a member of their staff to go to a specific event. Our remit is to help business growth, so there are a couple of conditions we have to work with, but we can support a pretty broad area of opportunities.

We can fund you to go to most events – as a long as it helps you gain new skills or knowledge which could support your company’s growth. To help us understand how this might apply, we just need to discuss what you hope to achieve with it, before approving the subsidy. If you don’t run the company, we also need to make sure whoever does is backing you up.

With some companies, we can take this support further by helping you compile an actionable plan to help you get the most out of attending, and ensure the knowledge is put to effective use.

So, if there’s something that you’d like to attend, please contact us using the form below and tell us why you want to go!
