Funding for Level 3 qualifications

Would you like to train for free to start a new career or develop your skills?

We have a new fund of £9.2m available for adults in the West Midlands to gain Level 3 qualifications, so that they are equipped with the skills needed by local employers.

We are funding local colleges and training providers to offer hundreds of courses, including in health and social care, civil engineering, painting and decorating, electric installation and roofing.

A full Level 3 qualification is equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma, or two A-levels.

To be eligible for free training, you need to be aged 19 or over, live in the West Midlands and not already have a Level 3 qualification.
