    Benefits for individuals

    There is funding available for individuals to develop their own skills through the Adult Education Budget (AEB)

    The AEB aims to engage adults and employers to provide the skills and learning needed in the region to equip adults for work, upskill individuals and find specialist training. The AEB enables more flexible, tailored programmes of learning to be made available in the West Midlands, to help eligible adults engage in learning, build confidence, enhance their wellbeing and provide future opportunities. We offer blended learning to ensure everyone can participate.
