This week the Prime Minister announced the Lifetime Skills Guarantee. This will provide adults in Southampton of any age without A-Level or equivalent qualifications the opportunity to undertake a free college course from April next year.

Taking up a college course offers the opportunity to gain a new qualification which could be attractive to employers. The last few months have given many of us time to think about what we want to achieve and perhaps a qualification may be just the thing you are looking for. Most courses will be available on a flexible or part-time basis which should make lifelong learning more accessible.
