Free Online Short Courses for Adults

We offer a wide range of FREE online courses for adults in Merseyside aged 19 and over, that can be completed in as little as six weeks!

Who are these courses for?

These courses are perfect for adults with little or no previous experience/qualifications, or for adults with some experience who are looking to develop their skills in a particular area. The courses have been designed to teach you the skills employers in Merseyside are looking for in new recruits.

Courses are completely free to those in receipt of benefits or on a low income (subject to eligibility criteria), and are also available at full cost for adults who do not meet eligibility criteria.
