Workforce Development Fund
The Workforce Development Fund (WDF) is funding from the Department of Health and Social Care which is disbursed by Skills for Care. It’s a limited pot of money which funds qualifications and learning programmes to support the ongoing professional development of staff across adult social care in England.
If you’re an adult social care employer in England, you can claim the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) towards the costs of your employees completing adult social care qualifications, units and learning programmes.
Workforce Development Fund is changing in 2018/19 due to the move to the
Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and the apprenticeship standard. There
are still many qualifications that will be funded but it is important that you
know which ones and what will be different. Please click here for further information.
If you have any queries or require further information about the Workforce Development Fund, eligibility and National Minimum Data Set, please contact the Workforce Development Fund Administrator via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 0208 541 8068
