HOW ARE THE PROGRAMMES FUNDED?

ADULT EDUCATION BUDGET

The Adult Education Budget (AEB) primarily funds learners aged 19+ to gain qualifications. It is a form of Government funding aimed to engage adults and provide the skills they need to equip them for a job, an Apprenticeship or other learning. The AEB aims to create more flexible and tailored programmes of learning for adults who have been out of work, despite why or for how long.
