Free qualifications on offer to boost skills and jobs

15th April 2021

At Barking and Dagenham College, we’re committed to supporting everyone in our local community to achieve their potential.

We want to help people in our local communities take that important step towards the job they want, or the career they’ve dreamed of.

Our FREE and subsidised adult courses are a great opportunity for anyone wishing to change career direction or upskill within an existing career.

We know the pandemic has hit families hard with many people losing their jobs last year. With a commitment to “building back better,” there is a strong focus on getting people back into employment. The government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee initiative aims to give adults the opportunity to get the skills they need to train, retrain and upskill throughout their lives. This will help meet the needs of the economy and fill in any skills gaps across industry sectors.

Adults who take up the free courses have the potential to boost career prospects, wages and help fill skills gaps while supporting in building up the economy again.

We’ve also worked closely with employers including Moorfields Hospital, Job Centre, and Kaleidoscope Sabre to train and upskill their staff to build a highly-skilled, efficient and productive workforce.

Are you 19+ and thinking of retraining and upskilling?

Perhaps you’re an employer who needs to boost the skills and outputs of your workforce?
