The Government launched the Lifetime Skills Guarantee. Our aim with this was to boost more people going to university, securing the jobs they want and broadening the career opportunities available.
Education helps us all level up which is why there are a number of free courses available both in person and online for any resident who has not already got a qualification at Level 3 (A-levels).
I have placed a link for some of the courses that can be accessed from Tamworth here but there is a filter on the site so you can look for topics which interest you, specific qualifications, part time or work based courses.
From early years qualifications to counselling, electrical installation, business studies, vehicle repair, carpentry, uniformed public services, health and social care, book keeping even engineering and aeronautical design there's quite a lot to choose from.
I hope some of you take a look and consider signing up - free education, a chance to broaden horizons and learn something new. Tamworth Campus is offering many courses as are Birmingham College, Solihull College and Acacia Training.
Let me know how you get on!
