Development Fund/Learning Fund Programme 2021/2023

In recent years, the Scottish Government has provided funding to the STUC to promote, develop, and support trade union-led learning and skills. This has been taken forward by Scottish Union Learning through two main funds: the Development Fund, which facilitates the development of infrastructure within trade unions and supports the organisation and delivery of trade union-led learning in the workplace, and the Learning Fund, which provides funds to support the learning activity.

Scottish Union Learning accepted applications for funding from bona fide trade unions with membership based within Scotland. The bids outlined strategy for a maximum two-year period from 2021-23 from either the Development Fund or the Learning Fund. Applications to this fund have now closed.

Development Fund quarterly report forms for 2021-22 can be downloaded from the panel on the right of this page.

Projects please note that the final date for submission of signed Quarter 1 reports is Friday 9 July 2021.
