DPN grew quickly with support from SWRDA, Cornwall Council, BT and others, delivering substantial projects funded through Objective 5b, Objective 1 and more recently Convergence ESF funding and SFA funding.

To this day DPN works in partnership to deliver projects funded by the European Social Fund / Skills Funding Agency and a range of pan European projects funded by the EU. DPN is also contracted to deliver ESFA (Education and Skills Funding Agency) mainstream-funded Apprenticeship provision on behalf of both The Learning Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall Adult Education Service (CAES).

Through these wide-ranging projects DPN supports Cornwall’s business community with its use of technology and digital skills, young people with career development and skills, and the unemployed to gain the digital skills they need to get back into work.
