Funded Courses

Sometimes it almost feels too good to be true that great courses and training programmes are ‘free’. And very few people know that funded education is available for everyone in the UK for life – it doesn’t stop after school and college. We are here to support you with a detailed plan to follow and a wide range of online courses and OFQUAL regulated qualifications that employers and educators highly value.


Kickstart your new career with a LinkedIn Professional Profile to showcase your new skills and qualifications. A CV review and update is also offered at no cost. Get that job, start that business, make that change TODAY.


Our qualified course tutors come with a wealth of knowledge, experience and guidance that you can lean on for unlimited support via email.


Upskill Online UK provide you with a course mentor and accountability sessions to help you stay motivated and on track to pass your course with ease. Finally, you can make good use of your qualification.

Where Does Funding Money Come From?

As with most things, it starts with the Government who create a budget for spending, giving pots of money for key services like the NHS, transport, health care and (most importantly in our opinion) education which is given to the Department for Education to control.

Our courses are from the Adult Education Budget (AEB).
