Lifetime Skills Guarantee

Are you an adult aged 19+? If you don’t hold a work-related level 3 qualification, you could be eligible to study a fully funded level 3 course under the Lifetime Skills Guarantee.

What is the Lifetime Skills Guarantee?

The scheme announced by the Prime Minister is designed to help our country build back better after the pandemic, and the qualifications in the scheme have been carefully chosen to help adults improve their career prospects and meet the needs of the economy.

The programmes are being delivered in a fast track format to be completed between April to July to support adults into employment.

Courses included in the scheme are being reviewed regularly as the economy changes, so do check back on this page regularly as more courses may be added.

You can find out more information about the Lifetime Skills Guarantee on the Government’s website here.

From April 2021, you can study the following level 3 courses fully funded under the Lifetime Skills Guarantee at #SSC:
