NATIONAL SKILLS FUND
NATIONAL SKILLS FUND AVAILABLE TO SYSTEM GROUP
WHAT IS THE NATIONAL SKILLS FUND?
The government is investing £2.5 billion in the National Skills Fund to help adults train and gain the valuable skills they need to improve their job prospects.
Any adult aged 19+ who wants to achieve their first full Level 3 qualification (equivalent to 2 full A-Levels) will be able to access hundreds of fully funded courses.
This means that if you fancy a new start or career change into one of the many logistics pathways, you can get the training you need for FREE.
LEVEL 3 ADULT OFFER
From April 2021, any adult aged 24 and over who wants to achieve their first full level 3 qualification, which is equivalent to a technical certificate or diploma, or 2 full A levels, will be able to access almost 400 fully funded courses.
Courses will be available in a variety of lengths, to support adults to get the skills they need to boost their careers.
This offer is part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee announced by the Prime Minister in September 2020. It represents a long-term commitment to remove the age constraints and financial barriers for adults looking for their first level 3 qualification so that they can access training to enable them to progress.
