Skills support for 18 and 19-year-olds

Benefit from fully funded courses to best prepare you for your career.

To help young people develop their career readiness for high-demand sectors such as IT, engineering, construction and healthcare the government have created a skills boost scheme for this academic year (2020/21) where young people can study specific industry-related courses for free.

These courses will enable 18 and 19-year-olds to increase their chances of future employment by building their existing technical and professional skills to a higher level or to gain new skills from taking an industry-specific qualification.

Fully funded courses available at City College:


People who are:

  • aged 18 or 19 on 31st August 2020
