Adult Education Budget

Supporting adults to gain new skills and qualifications

Want to increase your skills, retrain or gain some extra qualifications to help your new career? Worried about the cost of adult training courses?

Through the Adult Education Budget, you could access qualifications equivalent to GCSE and/or A Levels for free.

Full funding is available if you:

  • Are unemployed and seeking work
  • Want to improve your Maths and English
  • Earn less than £25,000 per year
  • Want to develop basic digital skills
  • Are 19-23 years old and want to achieve your first GCSE or A Level equivalent qualification.

Even if you don't fit the any of the above criteria, you could still benefit from part-funded courses. Get in touch with providers directly to understand what support you can access.
