Workforce Development Fund: up to £1200 per learner / new information pack
Since its launch in 2011, the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) has helped to support over 140,000 learners complete adult social care qualifications and learning programmes. We disburse this limited pot of money on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care, to use as a contribution towards the costs of employees completing qualifications and learning programmes.
You can claim up to £1,200 per learner per funding year, which runs from April to March, depending on the size of the qualification or learning programme. Take a look at the list of funded adult social care qualifications and learning programmes that can be claimed for.

Locality Manager Lindsey Thomas reminds local providers that all 4 Local Authorities that used to make up Avon are on “Direct Access” and can apply directly to Skills for Care for funding for qualifications staff have gained. A new information pack is available here.
