Funding for training

It's important that individual employers and personal assistants (PAs) have the right skills to do their roles.

Individual employers can apply for funding to pay for training to help them be a better employer, and to develop the skills of their PAs. 

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

Here are some examples of the types of training you could do. 

Visit this web page to find out more and apply for funding. Applications close on 28 February 2019 and any training must be started by 31 March 2019. 

If you work with individual employers please share this ‘Money for training’ leaflet with them – you can email Skills for Care to request printed copies on marketing@skillsforcare.org.uk.

Local training with user led organisations

We've awarded funding to several user led organisations across England who will deliver or arrange training for individual employers and PAs during 2018/19. If you would like to access any of the training courses, please contact the organisations directly using the contact details on this document. 

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.
