Funding for Unionlearn was previously provided by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) but following the machinery of government changes in 2017, this responsibility moved across to the Department for Education.

BIS provided Unionlearn with £14 million in the financial year 2015-16 and £12 million in the financial year 2016-17.

The department is providing £11.89 million funding in the current financial year and a further £12 millon in financial year 2018-19 and £12 million in financial year 2019-20.
