The National Skills Fund is available

Giving adults access to fully funded Level 3 qualifications

What is the National Skills Fund?

The National Skills Fund aims to help adults train and gain the valuable skills they need to improve their job prospects and support the economy.

The government is investing £2.5 billion in it to support the immediate economic recovery and future skills needs by boosting the supply of skills that employers require. The fund will give adults access to Level 3 qualifications. Hundreds of courses have been carefully selected to support adults to gain skills leading to jobs in various sectors.

Fully funded Level 3 qualifications for AAT students

Qualifications in several industries have been approved, including the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting (Level 3) and the AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 3).

This offer is part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee announced in September 2020. It represents a long-term commitment to remove the age constraints and financial barriers for adults looking for their first level 3 qualification so that they can access training to enable them to progress.

You might be entitled to receive funding for your AAT Level 3 qualifications – contact your local training provider to find out more.
