Lifetime Skills Guarantee
Free Level 3 Courses for Adults
The government has recently launched the Lifetime Skills Guarantee; a £95 million initiative backed by the National Skills Fund to provide an estimated 11 million adults the opportunity to gain a Level 3 qualification for free, to help them gain in-demand skills and secure employment opportunities.
Whether you're looking to start your career, progress further in your chosen role or even move into a completely new career, then these courses could offer a great pathway to exciting future prospects.
The Lifetime Skills Guarantee aims to transform the skills system so everyone can gain the skills they need to progress in work at any stage of their lives. It will also ensure employers have access to the skilled workforce they need and to bridge the skills gaps in a range of industries now and in the future.
