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

Existing Providers DO NOT need to complete the entire Due Diligence Pack.
Only complete sections where information has changed, as well as the following sections in full –

• Customers & Locations
• Staffing
• Declaration
• Evidence Checklist

To be considered for funding under the Community Learning fund organisations must complete a Community Learning Expression of Interest form for 2019/20. 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.
