It’s a government-funded programme that can be accessed by individuals to fund a huge range of training. AEB aims to engage adults and provides the skills and learning needed to progress in work or equip you for an Apprenticeship. Learners can utilise the AEB to gain new skills to prepare them for the workplace, improve progression opportunities in work or support a career change.
AEB funding can be used to fund training for all adults over the age of 19 for a wide range of qualifications. The process is reasonably straight-forward, but there are a few rules to follow:
- The funds can be used for anyone aged 19-23 to get a level 2 or 3 qualification if they don’t already have one.
- The AEB can be used to fund low-waged learners aged 19+ for level 2 qualification.
- The AEB can be used to fund anyone who is unemployed on benefits for qualifications up to level 2.
