Workers with  fewer than five GCSEs at grade C or above, or equivalent can get paid time off to train. You are entitled to take time off work without losing pay to do the studying and the Government reimburses your employer for the hours you miss. You can do the training in your workplace or at a local college and fit the hours around your shifts.  

In addition, in September 2020, the government launched a new Kickstart scheme aimed at providing six-month placements for young people aged 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. You can find out more about this new scheme on the government’s JobHelp website.
