PHX Training has secured a part of the Adult Education Budget for 2023 to help support people aged 19 and over with basic vocational and functional skills.
The training provider, which has offices in Preston, Blackpool, Morecambe, Carlisle and Barrow, Blackburn and Workington, runs courses aimed at helping people receive their first qualifications, which can help them find work or improve their quality of life.
The Adult Education Budget (AEB) was set up by the government to help support the delivery of education and training to people aged 19 and over. It is accessed through local training providers and colleges and made available to individuals and employers who want to upskill their workforce.
PHX Training secured the programme via a number of different sources, both directly and through subcontractors.
PHX will also be delivering the level three free course, also known as the free courses for jobs offer, which is equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma, or A level, and supports adults who meet the definition of ‘low wage’ or ‘unemployed’.
Briony Fawcett, managing director at PHX Training, said: “It’s great to see PHX land a place on the national adult education budget tender, alongside a number of other leading training providers.
“This will allow us to strengthen our delivery of essential training to adults across our regions, providing them with the basic skills needed to get into work, or upskilling in their chosen field. If you would like to enquire about any of our courses, please do get in touch.”
