About free adult skills and training
There are lots of local training organisations that offer free accredited training to adults.
Some courses may be subject to funding.
Many of these courses are short, lasting just a few weeks, and delivered on a part-time basis so that Job Seekers Allowance is not affected.
The courses cover areas including employability, IT, Maths, English and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) as well as sector-specific courses such as Business Administration, Customer Service and Health and Social Care.
