Funding for training

It's important people have the skills needed to carry out their roles, be it as a PA or an employer. PAs need to make sure they're skilled, confident and competent to deliver high quality care. Employers also need to have the right skills to be a good employer.

Training can take many forms, but quite often it costs money and there is funding available to help with this.

If you're an individual employer, you can apply for money to pay for training for you or your PAs. Here are some examples of the types of training you could do. 

We're pleased that these user led organisations have been awarded funding and will deliver or arrange learning and development for individual employers (IEs) and personal assistants (PAs) during 2017/18. If you would like to access any of the training courses, please contact the organisations directly using the contact details provided. 

If you're a user led organisation, you can apply for funding to deliver training. Please note, applications for funding are currently closed. Sign up to our newsletter to be kept up to date on funding opportunities.
