Starting from April 2021, the government is investing £2.5 billion through the National Skills Fund, a critical step towards the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and the ambition for people to be able to train, retrain and upskill throughout their lives in response to changing skills needs and employment patterns. National Skills Fund investment will help adults to gain the valuable skills they need to improve their job prospects. It will also support the immediate economic recovery and future skills needs by putting employers at the heart of the system and boosting the supply of skills that they require.

The responses from this consultation will help shape the provision which is currently funded through National Skills Fund investment.
