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.
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.
The 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 you will be contacted and arrangements made 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.
To qualify for full funding you must study a minimum of two subjects from the list below:
Construction and Electrical
Engineering and Automotive
Healthcare and Early Years
Uniformed Protective Services
