Wales Union Learning Fund (WULF): 2013 Bidding Round
WULF was launched in April 1999 in order to build capacity within the Union movement to maximise their learning engagement with both individuals and employers.
The next Wales Union Learning Fund (WULF) bidding round commences on 1st September 2012 and ends on 31st October 2012.
Union-led Learning is a key part of the Welsh Government’s ‘Programme for Government’. We believe that learning can change lives and, by improving Welsh skills for employment, can ultimately lead to a strong and vibrant Wales.
WULF aims to encourage and support learning in the workplace. It recognises the important role of Trades Unions working in partnership with employers, to improve the skills of the workforce.
Any certificated Trades Union with members based in Wales, whether or not it is affiliated to the Trades Union Congress is eligible to apply.
The new WULF Prospectus invites Trades Unions to bring forward projects that initiate, develop and sustain learning by raising the skills of the workforce by supporting trade union led learning activity. This is in partnership with employers and others, which focuses on addressing essential skill issues in the workplace and leads to progression onto mainstream learning programmes such as Essential Skills in the Workplace.
Projects should also help people to challenge themselves and make as full a contribution as possible to the future of Wales.
Trades Unions, employers, training providers, Wales TUC, Welsh Government and others working together through WULF have helped many individuals to transform their lives. It is increasing opportunity for people and taking learning to parts of the workforce that others cannot reach. To date WULF has assisted 166 innovative and imaginative projects with nearly £13m of support provided by the Welsh Government.
All applications received will be assessed by an Independent Assessment Panel against the criteria set out in the Prospectus. The downloadable Prospectus and application forms are attached below.
