Entitled to learn: connecting providers to lower income adults seeking learning


Colleges and independent training providers holding Adult Learning Funding report an ongoing challenge of recruiting eligible learners. At the same time, individual learners lack a single and simple pathway into adult learning and the funding available. Improved connections are required between potential learners on benefits/lower incomes looking to re-skill, and providers/organisations holding Adult Learning Funding.

Entitledto is a website helping more than 100,000 adults each week to calculate the benefits they are entitled to. By combining information collected during their benefits calculations with local information about available funded courses the project presents a unique opportunity to engage in a positive conversation around how to achieve individual progression through learning.

By the end of the project users will be seamlessly linked to a personalised dashboard where they will be empowered to explore local jobs, vocational pathways and locally available adult learning opportunities.
