Level 3 Adult Offer
From April 2021, any adult aged 24 and over who wants to achieve their first full level 3 qualification, which is equivalent to a technical certificate or diploma, or 2 full A levels, will be able to access almost 400 fully funded courses.
Courses will be available in a variety of lengths, to support adults to get the skills they need to boost their careers.
This is part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee announced by the Prime Minister in September 2020.
As part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, the Prime Minister also announced the skills bootcamp programme.
Complementing the level 3 adult offer, skills bootcamps offer free, flexible courses of just 12 to 16 weeks. They give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.
