In 2021-22 the WDF will continue to provide enhanced funding for completion of leadership and management qualifications, learning programmes and digital learning modules. The funding will support registered managers and other frontline managers with their continuing professional development (CPD), ensuring that they’re able to access learning opportunities to continue to develop their knowledge and skills to effectively lead and support the workforce through the pandemic.
Additional priorities may emerge during the year in response to COVID-19 recovery.
The 2021-22 Workforce Development Fund is not yet open. Sign up to eNews, our fortnightly e-bulletin, where we’ll announce when the fund is open for applications.
It's important to note that organisations accessing funding must meet the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) requirements for WDF. Please read the requirements to check if you're eligible to apply.
