We’re the UK’s leading awarding organisation for funded adult training.
Employability, occupational study and CPD
As the market leader for adult funded enrolments, we have been trusted with over 1 million enrolments since academic year 2017/18.
We offer hundreds of funded qualifications to help make education accessible for all and remove barriers for adults looking to progress in education, employment, and life.
Our diverse portfolio of qualifications and standalone units is fully aligned with skills-led recovery and multiple government-backed programmes, including both national skills agendas and regional skills priorities. To help people to find a job, and to stay and progress within a job, our offer includes:
- Employability and occupational study qualifications to upskill individuals with the transferable skills needed for work
- Personal social development
- Professional training and upskilling opportunities
- Continuing professional development (CPD)
- Regional learning and skills opportunities
- Non-regulated/bespoke delivery.
These qualifications are perfectly suited for employers who want to upskill their employees and encourage individual progression, and who realise the mutual benefits that come from offering quality CPD.
This provision is also suitable for employees who are keen to advance within their current career or explore available opportunities in a different sector.
Our adult education qualifications are eligible for a variety of funding streams, such as the Adult Education Budget (AEB), Lifetime Skills Guarantee, European Social Fund and Restart.
Available in priority sectors such as business and admin, childcare and early years, digital, health and social care and more, our qualifications will equip adults with everything they need to excel.
Learning for work
We design many of our employability qualifications to align with government initiatives, so that individuals get the best outcomes from their time on programme.
