To ask the Secretary of State for Education, who is planned to be eligible for the national retraining scheme.
11 January 2019
The National Retraining Scheme, announced in the Autumn 2017 Budget, will support adults to retrain as the economy changes.
The scheme will target those who are employed, with a particular focus on those with jobs that are at risk of technological change over the age of 24, and who do not hold a qualification at degree level.
Through findings from our user research and Career Learning pilots, we will continue to test and develop the scheme, with its strategic direction being overseen by a key partnership between the Confederation of British Industry, the Trades Union Congress and government.
