Funded Training Opportunity - by Skills for Care
That's right. We have been awarded a grant by Skills for Care. This has secured funding for us to deliver Virtual Learning to all Adult Health & Social Care settings that qualify, before the funding runs out.
We believe there is going to be a huge surge of demand, whilst services struggle the daily on-going battle with COVID-19. Skills for Care have drawn down funding to distribute amongst a select few providers to deliver essential training to the following groups:
- Volunteers who will be assisting only during the pandemic
- New Starters and Experienced Staff Returning - 5 Day Virtual Induction
- Update Training for Current Staff
What do you need to qualify?
This is very simple. You do not need to be registered with the Workforce Development Fund as we shall directly draw down the funding from Skills for Care. All you need to do is make sure your learner has access to the correct equipment (Laptop with Webcam, Mic and Stable internet connection) and that they attend the training.
You will only be granted a certain amount of funded learners to complete. The list will be as follows:
Small Employers (1-50 staff) – 10 Funded Learners;
Medium Employers (51-249 staff) – 20 Funded Learners;
Large Employers (250 + staff) – 30 Funded Learners;
After this, you may not be able to source any further funding. Although, we shall monitor and feed this back to Skills for Care, we cannot guarantee any further funding past the set amount.
Please note: You must ensure that your learner attends the sessions. We shall pre-book open courses for update training and we will offer dates and times for these courses to run. Should you have a block booking, then please contact us and we will try to assist where possible.
For a full breakdown of what is available and how to apply. Then please visit our website and click on the 'Funded Learning' page for further information.
There is a set contact form and we ask that you complete this instead of ringing in. We are expecting high call volumes and we will be able to answer your request by email as soon as possible.
