It’s never too late to develop your knowledge, skills and experience. Come to an Open Day or Meet the Experts event to get advice from a subject specialist about the best route to making your career goals a reality.

Study can be full or part-time and depending on your circumstances you might be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan, help with funding, or support paying for childcare.

Our short community courses can be a great way to try out a potential new career area or simply develop a new skill. Available at venues throughout the Fylde, you can choose from a variety of subjects.

Short employability courses are also on offer to give you the skills and confidence to get a foot onto the career ladder or to venture back into the job market after being away from it for a time.

A degree-level qualification can make you more productive in your current role and equip you to progress to more senior and better-paid positions.
