We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning students for the new term. — See our latest COVID-19 guidance

Fully funded courses available for those aged 24 and over

It’s not too late to join us as an adult student on a limited number of courses starting this September.

Also, the government’s new Lifetime Skills Guarantee programme has created new opportunities for adults aged 24 and over to access funded full-time learning.

Here at Nottingham College, adult learners who would have ordinarily had to take out an Advanced Learner Loan to pay their course fees for such courses, can now get government funding to study certain courses.

If you do not hold a full Level 3 qualification (equivalent to at least two A Levels, or a Level 3 vocational qualification) you can now access training for a range of in-demand skills.

Ready to apply? Find out how to join us now

If you haven’t applied yet for courses starting this September, some of our courses still have space.

You can apply online. After a successful application, the next stage is to book onto an enrolment session.

The Lifetime Skills Guarantee scheme aims to help adults back into training after many have found work dry up or competition for jobs too fierce, as a result of the pandemic.

By offering funded training and qualifications in areas such as healthcare, engineering, education and more, adults can gain higher level skills, ready to move into the workplace.

Courses that will be funded for eligible adult applicants are below.

Upon completion of your application we’ll contact you and make arrangements for your enrolment onto the course(s) you’ve chosen, ready for you to start.

If you don’t have the capacity to fit a full-time course into your schedule, the College also offers a full range of part-time courses for adults. This includes online courses and options in community venues across Nottingham (see individual course listings for any funding that may be available for the part-time options).

A Levels

To qualify for full funding you must study a minimum of two subjects from the list below:



Catering and Hospitality

Construction and Electrical

Engineering and Automotive

Healthcare and Early Years

Uniformed Protective Services
