Changes to the Skills for Care Workforce Development Fund for 2018-19

The Workforce Development Fund has changed for  2018/19 due, in part,  to the move to the Regulated Qualifications Framework. The changes have been made largely because the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) has been withdrawn to make way for the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). Employers who have learners still working on QCF qualifications may still be able to claim but the process will be different as explained below.

For the year ahead, 2018-19 there are two main changes to bear in mind if you are an employer who has previously claimed WDF funding for learners.

  • For all qualifications the evidence required to support claims will be a copy of the learner’s certificate, although for QCF qualifications this will still need to include the full unit breakdown. Unit summary sheets will not be accepted by Skills for Care as evidence in 2018/19.
  • Skills for Care will not fund all health and social care RQF qualifications so it is important to check the list of what will be funded before you make a claim. There are still many qualifications that will be funded but it is important that you know which ones and what will be different.
