In addition, from April 2022, any adult in England earning under the National Living Wage annually (£18,525) or unemployed will also be able to access one of these qualifications for free, regardless of their prior qualification level if they have not previously benefited from the National Skills Fund scheme.

This offer is part of the government’s long-term commitment to help everyone gain skills for life. Courses are available in a variety of lengths, to support adults to get the skills they need to boost their careers.
