DfE Launches Flexible Learning Fund
The DfE have launched their Flexible Learning Fund up to £10 million to help providers design and develop new ways of supporting adults to engage with learning. This is part of a £40 million package piloting new approaches to lifelong learning that were announced in this year’s spring budget. It will provide grants of up £1 million to innovative projects that focus on new ways of delivering learning so that more adults are engaged. Projects should centre on the delivery of basic skills, or intermediate / higher level technical learning and should fit within at least one of four “categories of interest” which cover learning outside normal working hours; learning outside the classroom; blended / online learning; and delivery that engages those with caring responsibilities or labour market returners. The deadline for applications to the fund is January 31st 2018 and grant support is available until March 2019.
We have had interest from some 8 organisations so please get in touch if you would like to discuss further or we can help support your application.
