What is the Workforce Development Fund?
The fund gives employers the opportunity to claim money towards the costs of employees completing adult social care qualifications, units, apprenticeships and learning programmes between 1 January 2017 and 31 March 2018. There are two ways to access the fund depending on your location:
- you can join an employer led partnership, or
- if you’re based in the advertised local authority areas, you can access funding directly from Skills for Care directly from Skills for Care.
