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 National Skills Fund are offering Level 3 qualifications for free as an incentive to improve the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
How does the National Skills Fund work?
The Government launched ‘Free Courses For Jobs’ 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.
