The list will be kept under review and Gateway Qualifications is able to suggest additions to the list, so if there is a need in your area to support adult learners that could benefit from qualifications which are not currently on the list, please contact us to discuss the possibility of adding those.
What is the National Skills Fund?
The National Skills Fund is intended to help adults gain the skills needed to improve their job prospects. The Government has announced it plans to invest £2.5 billion in the fund over the coming years. The National Skills Fund can be used to support the immediate economic recovery and build the future skills that employers require. In the November 2020 Spending review, the Chancellor announced £375 million for the National Skills Fund. More information about the National Skills Fund is available on the ESFA website.
