National Skills Funding Level 3

The government is investing £2.5 billion in the National Skills Fund and is designed for adults to train and gain the valuable skills they need to upgrade existing or new skills.

Under the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, adults aged 19 or over without a full level 3 qualification can now access a range of courses at level 3 for free. This initiative is funded through the National Skills Fund. For the plant sector, a number of related qualifications are available as part of the offer.

At level 3, courses or qualifications include supervision for hire and rental operations or occupational work supervision. There are a range of administrative, IT, assessor and managerial qualifications.
