What is the Government free courses for jobs scheme?
The programmes are being delivered to support adults into employment.
If you are 19 or over and do not already have a level 3 qualification or higher, you can access a free level 3 qualification. A Level 3 qualification is equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma, or A levels.
If you already have a level 3 qualification or higher, but you earn below the National Living Wage annually (£18,525 from April 2022) or are unemployed, you can also access these qualifications for free. This is regardless of any qualifications you already have.
Some of these qualifications are available to study online or part-time.
You may be able to get help to pay for childcare, travel and other costs.
The qualifications could help you to gain skills that employers value, improve your job prospects and earn a good wage.
