Adult Education Budget for the unemployed

Our fully funded courses for unemployed learners are for those aged 19 and over who are in receipt of a benefit from the Government, who have the right to live and work in the UK and who have been resident in the UK or another EU country for three years.  There are some exemptions to these residency requirements and further information is available from our office (020 8748 9898).

Our referrals come from Jobcentre Plus.  If you are interested in one or more of the courses listed below, speak to your Jobcentre adviser and we will arrange with them a referral to our next available course.  Whichever course you undertake with us you will have the support of our Jobsearch team and our IAG qualified advisers to help you find work, both during your course and after you have completed it.  We work closely with employers in West London – particularly in the hospitality sector and at the airport – so achieving a job is within your grasp if you take one of our courses.  Please call Devyana or Ruby on 020 8748 9898 for further details
