Personal Learning Accounts (PLAs)

engineering automotive banner

Take advantage of FREE and FLEXIBLE courses in ICT, Construction, Engineering and Health & Care

If you’re 19 or over, in a job earning less than £26,000 a year* and want to take the next step to a great career, a Personal Learning Account could be just what you’re looking for.

* If you’re a furloughed worker, you’re still eligible to apply for a Personal Learning Account course regardless of your salary level.

Personal Learning Accounts are free courses that give you new skills and qualifications – ones that local employers are looking for – to help you take advantage of skills shortages and get your career really moving.

Better still, they’re flexible – we aim to meet the needs of the whole group when planning the dates and times to run courses. We do our best to deliver learning to fit around people’s family and work commitments.

You’ll find plenty of great, well-paid vacancies are available at the end of it – whether you want to move on in your chosen career or change it altogether!

Any questions? Here are the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.

Are you an employer? Do you have a skill shortage in ICT, Construction, Engineering or Health and Care?

If so, contact us to discuss your needs and to connect with the fresh new talent coming through.

Please only apply for one course at a time, as if you make multiple applications, only one can be processed.

Even though you may be eligible for funding for more than one Personal Learning Account course, we can only accept one application per person at a time. If an application is successful for a course, you must complete the first course before any more applications can be made.

If you are unsure which course to choose and need further advice and guidance on your career development, before choosing your PLA course, Working Wales, can provide advice and guidance.  Please contact Working Wales on 0800 028 4844 or visit workingwales.gov.wales.
