Adult Education Budget increased flexibility for learners in receipt of low wage
A new trial will enable AEB providers to fully fund learners who are employed and in receipt of a low wage and cannot contribute towards the cost of co-funding fees.
The one-year trial, for the 2018 to 2019 funding year, will enable more eligible adults to access AEB funding.
This will help to increase AEB participation and lift social mobility barriers to learning for those who would not otherwise engage due to course fees being unaffordable. It will also support those who have been motivated to move out of unemployment and are in receipt of a low wage to further progress in work and their chosen career.
