Workforce Development Fund

21 October 2020

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.

For further information please visit the Skills for Care Website

For Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Care Providers

you need to claim directly from Skills for Care

See below link for further information how to claim.
