Adult Learning Grants

Skills for Life Network

An update on the piloting of this new grant that is aimed at encouraging adults to participate and to stay in learning

The Adult Learning Grant is a means tested allowance of up to £30 per week for adults on low incomes, who are resident in England and studying full time for a first Level 2 or first Level 3 qualification.

ALG pilots have been running since 2003/2004. From September 2006 ALG is being piloted in 25 LSC areas and the LSC anticipate that over 11,000 learners will receive ALG in 2006/2007. Full national coverage will take place in 2007/2008.
