FREE Training for Adults

Training Now have recently been awarded funding from the Adult Education Budget to deliver training, up to and including Level 2, to people aged 19+. This also includes additional learning support for people who may have barriers to attending learning sessions, for example travel or childcare.

Are all our courses classroom-based?

All of our short courses (apart from moving and positioning) can be delivered as e-learning, distance study or in a training room.
