Free Training for Under 25s

Via Freedom for Children to Grow, we hear that there will be free training for the under 25s.

"The entitlement will encourage young adults to continue studying until they achieve the equivalent of 2 A levels and make sure they can get the qualifications to improve their life chances, social mobility and contribute to the economy.

"We need to recognise that many young people continue their initial education into their early twenties. It is important that we support them and help them succeed and progress on to higher education where they can. "

The new entitlement will be available from August through colleges of further education and other providers of high quality education and training who have satisfied the Learning and Skills Council quality assurance process.
