Personal Learning Accounts


Personal Learning Accounts (PLAs) are free courses that give you new skills and qualifications – ones that local employers are looking for. These courses will help you take advantage of skills shortages and boost your career.

If you are over 19, in a job earning less than £26,000 a year* and want to take the next step to a great career, a Personal Learning Account could be just what you’re looking for.

Better still, they’re flexible – so you can study around work and family commitments.

You’ll find plenty of great, well-paid vacancies are available at the end of it, whether you want to progress within your current career or change it altogether!

Course areas we offer include:

  • Construction
  • Creative
  • Digital
  • Engineering
  • Financial services
  • Health and social care
  • Leisure and tourism

Any questions? Please get in touch with a member of the team on 01792 284400 or email

*If you’re a furloughed worker, you’re still eligible to apply for a Personal Learning Account course regardless of your salary level.
