Flexible Learning Fund

The Department for Education have launched the £10m Flexible Learning Fund to support projects that deliver learning to adults in ways that are flexible and easy to access.  The Fund is the first of the career learning pilots for which £40m was announced at Spring Budget.

The Fund offers the chance to apply for grant funding to support projects which aim at designing and developing flexible and accessible methods of delivering technical or basic skills to adults.

The specification document gives full details of what is required of project proposals, and what criteria will be used to assess them.  Proposals need to be submitted using the submission form, and the guidance document explains how to complete each section of the form.
