Nothing should stand in the way of ambition, and it’s our goal to support individuals and organisations with training and reskilling. We offer hundreds of funded qualifications to help make education accessible for all, and remove barriers for adult learners looking to progress in education, employment and life.
Our qualifications can help learners with re-entering the workplace and to address the skills gaps in specific industries and regions. These qualifications are eligible for adult education budget (AEB), come with comprehensive learning resources, and importantly, are recognised by employers for their relevance, rigour and quality. Plus, our short, sharp, flexible solutions are ideal for distance learning.
We make it quick and easy to keep up-to-date with funding policy, explore new business opportunities and fulfil regional and national skills needs. Our programmes and resources help to provide maximum impact for adult learners.
Several local areas in England, known as Mayoral Combined Authorities (MCAs), are now responsible for their own AEBs. The MCAs use these budgets to address education and training needs for those people aged 19 and above in their areas.
We’ve put together packages that can support individuals to build back better. From reskilling and support re-entering the workplace, to aligning a programme to the skills gaps specifically for a region. Take a look at the packages we’ve designed for:
- Cambridge and Peterborough
- Greater London
- Greater Manchester
- City Region
- North of Tyne
- West of England West Midlands
- West Yorkshire
- Sheffield City Region
- Tees Valley
Go the distance
Through our go the distance initiative, we want to:
- Provide a range of qualifications that will give people the best possible chance of finding employment in growing sectors
- Reassure employers that adults coming from different sectors have the skills they need to make the transition into a new industry
- Support adults seeking to start their own business by showing them how to make their dreams a reality
- Work with providers to offer regional expertise and help them build a curriculum which maps local priorities.
You can fund many of these qualifications using the AEB.
