‚ÄčThe 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.

‚ÄčThrough 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.
