Since March 2020, SMEs have been able to apply for grants to set up a business school, get career advice for their employees or to keep their employees' skills up to date. In SMEs, it is less common for employees to learn and develop during their working life. Employers often have less time, money or knowledge for this than in larger companies. The Dutch government is structurally allocating € 48 million per year for this. With the Incentive Scheme for Learning and Development in SMEs (SLIM scheme), the Dutch government wants to make learning and development the most normal thing in the world of SMEs as well.
