Workbased learning for adults

These programmes are designed especially for unemployed adults who want to return to work. Learning while working is the idea behind these programmes and they aim to meet all the needs of the mature student.

There are four different programmes running, each with a different basis:

Studying for a NVQ Level 2 while being employed full-time by a local employer. This programme runs for 18 months.

Learning basic workplace skills and gaining work experience at the same time. Students will
receive 10 per week as well as their other benefits.

Especially interesting for women returners is the update of existing skills by working for a local employer. Students will receive 10 per week in addition to their benefits.

Studying about setting up your own business and gaining an NVQ Business Planning. This
programme runs for 20 weeks.

For further information about these programmes contact the local Employment Service Job Centre.
