Flexible Learning Fund

Flexible Learning Fund

At the Spring 2017 Budget, the Government committed to exploring ambitious new approaches to encouraging lifelong learning. £40M was allocated at the Spring 2017 Budget for pilots aimed at helping adults progress in employment or enter new occupations through re-skilling or up-skilling. 

EDLounge's VIRTUAL EDUCATION LOUNGE bid was 1 of 32 Training Providers successful in the application for being part of the pilot.

The great news for EDLounge can be seen by the announcement made by the Rt Hon Anne Milton, MP (Apprenticeship and Skills Minister) that can be fully viewed here:
