Level Up Your Education For Free

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an impact on all our lives, and it may have left you out of work or thinking of a complete career change. That’s where the Level 3 Lifetime Skills Guarantee comes in.

If you don’t currently hold a Level 3 qualification, then you are eligible to study for free as an Adult learner.

What is a Level 3 Qualification?

Level 3 qualifications are the equivalent of an A level that offer a route to higher education or the skills to boost your career prospects. The Government Lifetime Skills Guarantee are offering Level 3 qualifications for free as an incentive to improve the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

How does the Guarantee scheme work?

The Government launched the Level 3 Lifetime Skills Guarantee in April 2021 to meet the effects the pandemic has had on careers, including redundancies and business closures.

It means over 400 courses are now available to study for free for those aged over 19 years old. So wherever you’re looking to reskill or upskill, there’s never been a better opportunity than this September.
