The PM today set out plans to transform the training and skills system to help the country recover from coronavirus.
The plans include:
- A Lifetime Skills Guarantee to give adults the chance to take free college courses valued by employers.
- A new entitlement to flexible loans to allow courses to be taken in segments, boosting opportunities to retrain.
The Skills Toolkit
There has also been an expansion of DfE’s online learning platform, The Skills Toolkit, to more than 70 courses in digital, numeracy and employability or work-readiness courses.
