Adult social care employers can reclaim some of the cost of Diplomas, Awards and Certificates units through our Workforce Development Fund. The annual Workforce Development Innovation Fund helps employers to develop new ways of working to address changing workforce needs.
Employers of newly qualified social workers can claim funding related to the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment. For people who employ their own care and support, our Individual Employer Funding can help them and their staff to cover the cost of induction training and qualifications.
