UNISON Personal Learning Grants for Community-based Care Staff

mobile-menu mobile-menu-arrow Menu

We know how difficult it is to afford career development training due to huge increases in course fees and the withdrawal by many employers of financial support for career development.

To help you get on at work and develop your career, UNISON is piloting Personal Learning Grants with members working in community-based care. Ten awards of £300 each are offered. The grants can be used towards course fees and costs including course books, travel, and residential session costs, so you can apply even if you already receive a grant or a loan for fees.

These bursaries cover a wide range of subjects. They can be used for study on any general non-vocational course or any vocational course relevant to working in public services, including public services delivered by private contractors.

When allocating these awards, we will give preference to members with few or no qualifications. We are also keen to hear from members who are active in their branch. However applications are welcomed from all community-based care staff members.
