Invest in Your Future with Fully Funded Education Opportunities

Invest in Your Future with Fully Funded Education Opportunities!

In light of recent events, some of us may have experienced changes in our jobs and/or considered a change in direction with our careers. As we are likely aware change can offer opportunities for growth, it can help us to become more resilient and adaptable. So what better time to retrain or upskill your professional profile?

Now is the perfect time to take the opportunity to make a positive change towards your future career, for free!

With this in mind, we are delighted to share that residents of Peterborough and Cambridgeshire are now able to receive funding from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA). This includes most PE and CB postcodes.  

Eligible learners are now able to apply for range of fully funded, high quality education and training courses to retrain and upskill.
