How Training as An Adult Can Support your Career Development

20th December, 2021 Read time: Two minutes

The Adult Education Budget (AEB) is a government-funded programme that can be accessed by people who are aged 19+ and looking to gain a Level 2 or 3 qualification.

There are huge range of funded training courses available which Futures have been delivering for four years, including:

  • Business Administrations
  • Customer Service
  • Health and Social Care
  • IT Training
  • Functional Skills in Maths
  • Functional Skills in English 

Not only does it look great on your CV and can help you get the job you’re after, there are a load of other great benefits to an AEB course too. Learning new information and skills is such an invaluable experience. 


Taking up a new course can work wonders for your confidence. It encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and the more you take part, the more you'll begin to feel at ease, helping to boost your confidence levels whilst expanding your skillset.  

Career Development 

Learning new skills opens up opportunities and career prospects that you wouldn’t have been able to access before. Not only are you expanding your knowledge in your chosen subject, but finishing with a recognised qualification shows employers you’re serious and committed. You might find you’re now able to go for that job you've always dreamed of! 


Feeding your brain new information and experiences is the perfect recipe for inspiration. Working on new challenges can be fun and rewarding, making you happier in the short term and the long term. You’ll also meet new people along the way which is a sure-fire way to boost your oxytocin – the hormone that helps you to feel good!
