Start a new path to a job you love
If you’re aged 19 or over, you could access a level 3 qualification for free.
This is part of the support available from the government to help you gain the skills you need to get the job you want – whatever your stage of life.
A level 3 qualification is equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma, or A levels. If you’re eligible, you will not have to pay course fees. You will only pay a £30 college membership fee.
Courses link to a large range of sectors, including accounting, health and social care, education, early years, management and more. Gaining a level 3 qualification could boost your income by 16% and help you stand out to employers.
- gain skills that employers value
- improve your job prospects
- earn a higher wage
You can get a free level 3 qualification if you meet any of the following criteria.
- are 19 or over and do not already have a level 3 qualification
- already have a level 3 qualification or higher but earn below the National Living Wage annually (£20,319 from April 2023)
