Personal Learning Account

Are you eligible for funding?

A Personal Learning Account is a new initiative from Welsh Government that has been introduced to address two growing issues; the barriers preventing learning in adulthood and the rising skill shortages currently facing priority sectors.

A Personal Learning Account could provide you with the opportunity to develop your career or move to a sector that can offer you the chance to develop and progress, while also providing a route out of in-work poverty and underemployment.
