The Budget and post-16 learners

Skills for Life Network

Main points relating to adult learners

Main points relating to adult learners are:

New learners: £25million will be provided to fund new learner entitlements for all 19-25 year olds studying advance level courses from 2007/8. This will fund a package of support for 19-25 year olds, to tackle the key Level 3 skills gap and to provide a seamless transition from the 14-19 phase through to 25 for those young adults who have not achieved Level 2 or Level 3 qualifications by 19.

Adult learning: £11m will be available to allow the roll-out of the Adult Learning Grant to be brought forward to the 2007/08 academic year, providing maintenance payments to adult learners on low incomes.

Women and skills: A further £40million package will be provided in response to the employment issues faced by low-skilled women, with a focus on skills training and targeted career advice.
