As our courses are now Regulated and fully recognised by the Government this means you may also be eligible to have your training Fully Funded through central government education and training funds.
Access to Funding
Hands on Babies are regularly approached by individuals, SME’s, charities and community groups who are seeking training in Baby Massage and Baby Yoga. All too often a big barrier to accessing the training is funding availability. If central government funds were available it would remove this barrier to learning and enable Hands on Babies to engage many more learners, providing them with the confidence, skills and learning at a nationally recognised standard to equip them for work and introduce them to further learning.
Hands on Babies in association with Skills First have been working on the development of these regulated qualifications for many years. By taking the skills of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga through the OfQual Regulated Qualification process within the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), for the first time in the UK, the quality of training can finally be formalised and officially & nationally recognised and the barriers that have existed for many to train in these wonderful disciplines can be reduced, making Baby Massage and Baby Yoga training more accessible than ever before.
Firstly, check to see if you or your staff are eligible for FREE or subsidised training. As our Qualifications are Government Recognised they can potentially be funded through central government funding. If you are residing in the UK, over 19 years old, unemployed, on low wages or believe you are at risk of losing your employment, you may be eligible for FREE or subsidised training.
Our Regulated courses have been approved for Adult Education Budget (AEB) funding through the following mechanisms:
16-19 EFA (Education Funding Agency), Adult Skills, Community Learning, The European Social Fund and OLASS. Most Local Authorities and Colleges of Further Education will have AEB budgets available to spend in your area.
Contact your local fund holder to see if funding is available.
