NEW WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT FUNDING FOR 2016/17

Our Workforce Development Fund (WDF) for 2016/17 is now open and we welcome new and existing WDF Members to the Care Workforce Development Partnership and invite you to start sending your WDF claims to us for processing.

 

About the Workforce Development Fund

 

The WDF is a funding stream from the Department of Health which is disbursed by Skills for Care through a network of employer led partnerships in England. The Care Workforce Development Partnership is the Employer Led Partnership organisation for Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.

 

The WDF supports the ongoing professional development of adult social care staff and employers who are WDF Members can claim for costs that they have directly incurred in supporting their staff to do health and social care qualifications, units and Apprenticeships.

WDF will pay a contribution of £15 per credit with a maximum of 60 credits per learner per funding year. How much you can claim back will depend on the qualification, the units selected and how many credits make up those units.
