  • These programmes are free and part-funded higher education places allocated within the Government Jobs Stimulus Package to help get people back to work, upskill workers and build economic confidence while continuing to manage the impact of COVID-19.

    Modular Skills Programmes are part-time, short and focused and are being offered in a flexible manner, allowing participants to gain important skills without taking a considerable period away from the labour market.

  • Download Brochure.

Each module/programme is stand-alone so that participants can gain skills and put them into practice immediately in the workplace, but modules are also accredited in such a way as to provide building blocks to a full qualification should the student so wish.  These are free for all at Level 6, free at all levels for Returners and the unemployed, but the employed must pay 10% for Levels 7, 8 and 9.
