Funding rules will be relaxed in 2009 in many areas of the care sector


Changes in the funding regulations for care training will be introduced in 2009.

These changes, which will affect many different sectors of care, include funding from Train to Gain to improve carer’s access to training when and where carers need it, regardless of their previous training and qualifications.

The changes include:

  • Stand-alone accredited training modules and part-qualifications in essential areas like business systems, communications, sales and marketing, information technology, customer service, new product design, finance and credit, cash flow and profit management, and risk management;
  • Fully funded Level 2 qualifications and subsidised level 3 qualifications, regardless of whether the employee already has a qualification at this level.
