The training that is needed to achieve the Training Standard will have to be funded. However, the training we provide as part of this award is at Level 2 and Level 3 on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF).

If you are compliant with the National Minimum Data-set for Social Care (NMDS-SC), you will be able to claim back all the cost of the qualifications from the Workforce Development Fund, through a local or national partnership.

As we are currently in pilot phase of the award, there will be no fees to the organisations that take part in helping us evaluate it. However, once the pilot phase ends there will be an assessment charge.
