Skills training for benefit claimants is predominantly funded by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), a partner organisation of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. There is no specific budget for skills-related activities in DWP. Currently, DWP Delivery (Jobcentre Plus) has the flexibility to supplement SFA funding for skills training and associated costs (for example, travel and child care costs) using the Flexible Support Fund.
