The next opportunity to apply for Community Learning Funding will be in April 2018. This will be for activities to be delivered from 1st August 2018 up to 31st July 2019. Applications will be accepted until 5pm on Wednesday 23rd May 2018.

Future applications must be submitted by the last day of the month to be considered by the panel in the ensuing month.

To be considered for funding under the Community Learning fund organisations must complete a Community Learning Expression of Interest form for 2018/19. This form asks some general questions about your organisation and helps us establish if your organisation is in a position to deliver good quality Community Learning programmes in line with our overall mission. We also ask for references and for you to confirm that you have the necessary relevant up to date policies.

The form only needs to be completed once every academic year (August – July) but needs to be completed by all potential providers whether we have worked with you before or not.

The completed Community Learning Expression of Interest forms are considered at a panel meeting consisting of Wandsworth Lifelong Learning staff and members of the Lifelong Learning Development Group. Decisions will be made by the panel as to whether your organisation meets the requirements to be a delivery partner.
