Workforce Development Fund

24 December 2018

You could claim money towards developing your employees

If you’re an adult social care employer in England, you can claim the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) towards the costs of your employees completing adult social care qualifications and learning programmes.

Due to the introduction of the Regulated Qualifications Framework in 2017 and the new apprenticeships standards introduced to comply with Government reforms, a number of changes have been made to the way the WDF is disbursed.

The two main changes are that:

  1. funding is now claimed for completed qualifications or learning programmes and is evidenced by a copy of the learner’s certificate.

  2. there is a financial limit per learner within a single funding year.
