Low Pay Trial

Want a qualification but the tuition fees are putting you off?

For one year, starting 1 August 2018, if you earn less than £15,736.50 per year (gross) and you want to upskill or retain to get a better job, you will be eligible for free training. 

A new national trial starting August this year will now enable Cheshire West and Chester Work Zones to fully fund learners up to and including level 2 qualifications. 

To be eligible, you need to be employed and in receipt of an annual salary of less than £15,736.50 (gross) regardless of how many hours you work. 

So if you had been thinking of getting that IT qualification or retraining in Care or Construction etc., now is the time to do it.

Contact your local Work Zone and see how we can help you or just drop in for a chat.
