Jack McConnell, the Scottish finance minister, will today announce details of£77m of European funding to promote training and skills development throughout Scotland, reports The Herald (p1).

He will appeal directly to local authorities, enterprise companies, further and higher education institutions and the voluntary sector to come forward with suitable programmes to benefit from the EU finance.

'This money is coming from the EU's Objective 3 structural funding scheme and, for the first time, Scotland will have its own separate programme instead of being part of a UK one,' Mr McConnell said last night.

'We want to give new opportunities to people who have beeb excluded from the job market get back into employment and we want to help people in work to retain and upgrade their skills.'
