Work Based Learning for Adults
Work Based Learning for Adults is a government scheme that works to help unemployed adults back into employment or self-employment, by giving them skills and training, and job-related experience. The scheme is run at a local level by Learning and Skills Councils (in England and Wales). Members of the scheme follow a training plan, which can involve job-specific training, work towards a National Vocational Qualification or Scottish Vocational Qualification, and work experience. A person aged 25 or over who has been unemployed for six months or longer can join the scheme, as may a person aged 18 to 24 who has a disability and has been claiming benefits other than Jobseeker's Allowance.
