Free Courses for Adults

Our courses for adults are designed to give you new knowledge and skills to boost your chances of finding a job you love and help you achieve more in your career.

Courses can combine:

  • Achieving a national recognised vocational qualification
  • Improving your English and Maths
  • Developing your personal and employability skills
  • Improving your computer (IT) skills
  • Access to HE: Healthcare Professional

You can take our courses if you live in the postcode areas covered by Greater London, West Midlands, South Yorkshire, South East, and Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

Outside these areas we might not be able to offer you our courses – this is because of the way the courses are funded.

    When can I start?

    Contact our friendly team who can help you decide which courses are right for you, depending on what you want to achieve.

    We teach courses to small groups of learners in every month of the year, so you don’t have to wait to get started. See what’s starting this month in the calendar below.

    You can also choose to study several courses at the same time, so you can achieve a lot in a short time.

    Learn online or in-person

    We have a lot of courses which can be taught and assessed online using our virtual learning platforms.

    We also have technical courses which need to be taught face-to-face, at least part of the time, in our centres combined with high-quality, relevant work experience.

    Our flexible learning models make it easy to fit your courses around other commitments and to learn when it suits you.

    I really enjoyed the free online English and Maths course with Skills Training UK. I’ve enhanced my confidence and understanding of Mathematics as well as speaking, reading, writing and listening. This is all due to my encouraging and skilled tutor who instils confidence in every learner.
