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 for themselves and their PAs.

Please note, applications for funding are now closed.

We hope that applications for 2020-21 funding will open in spring 2020. Sign up to our ‘Newsletter for individual employers and those who support them’ to keep up-to-date.

What can the funding pay for?

The money can be used to pay for training to develop you as an employer and to develop the skills of your PA(s).

It can pay for training courses, expenses to get to and from the training and for a replacement PA when your usual PA is attending training.

It can be used for different types of training like moving and assisting, first aid, communication, dementia awareness, diabetes awareness, risk assessments, skills for employers, and qualifications like a diploma in health and social care.
