Funding & Grants For Skills For Care Training Courses
Skills For Care Training Course Grants & Funds
AOne offer fully-funded QCF, RQF & NVQ Skills For Care training programmes through SSW (Skills Support for the Workforce), which was designed to upskill employees in Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs). We can provide FREE regulated and non regulated training courses to those eligible for this funding.
The SSW fund exists to invest in SMEs and their employees. As a Centre of Excellence with Skills for Care, AOne can deliver accredited courses in the Health and Social Care sector at no cost to your business.
To be eligible for the SSW fund, learners must be employed by the SME organisation, aged 16+, and able to work in the UK, having lived here or the EEA for the last three years. If you are interested in increasing your employees’ skillsets or want to boost your organisation’s growth this funding is a great way to do that. Get in touch today to discuss whether you and your employees qualify for this fund.
Workforce Development Fund (WDF)
AOne also provides support for employers to access the Workforce Development Fund (WDF). This is particularly useful for employees that may have difficulty completing an apprenticeship End Point Assessment (EPA) or Functional Skills requirements due to language barriers, learning disabilities, or assessment anxiety. The WDF supports learners with completing a Diploma in Health & Social Care instead of an apprenticeship.
The WDF helps yo upskill staff members and evidence their Continued Professional Development (CPD). Employees who work across specialist areas of care such as working with clients with dementia or supporting those with learning disabilities will be able to benefit from enhancing their knowledge, and therefore meet the specialist or personalised needs of residents.
Employers who want to access this funding need to register & comply with the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) requirements.
