Lifetime Skills Guarantee

You could be eligible for a free Level 3 qualification to build the skills that local businesses are looking for!

From 1 April 2021, if you are an adult aged over 24 and do not already have a Level 3 qualification (for example A Levels, an Advanced Technical Diploma or equivalent), you can now study for your first full Level 3 qualification for free as part of the Government's Lifetime Skills Guarantee. 

This offer, including the small range of courses that available to you, has been designed to help adults gain the skills and qualifications that they need to succeed in work, and in line with local skills needs. It represents Government investment of £95 million to take away the barrier of having to pay for training or take out a loan to pay course fees. 

At MidKent College the following courses are available to you through the scheme: 

  • National Diploma in Engineering Level 3
  • National Extended Diploma in Engineering Level 3
  • Extended Diploma in Public Services Level 3
  • Diploma in Entry into Uniformed Services Level 3
  • Diploma in Policing Level 3
  • Diploma in Accounting (AAT) Level 3
  • Advanced Technical Diploma in Electrical Installation Level 3
  • National Extended Diploma in Children's Play, Learning and Development Level 3
  • Advanced Technical Diploma in Plumbing Level 3
