The initiative forms part of the Department for Education’s £2.5bn National Skills Fund, which is part of the Government’s wider Plan for Jobs.

The course content incudes insights into the local industry, technical skills and knowledge and employability skills. 

Learners will be awarded the UKFT digital badges of achievement when they successfully complete the course and will be guaranteed an interview with a local employer.
