Adult education budget (AEB) 2018 to 2019 increased flexibility for learners in receipt of low wage
A new trial will enable AEB providers to fully fund learners, who are employed and in receipt of a low wage and cannot contribute towards the cost of co-funding fees.
The one-year trial, for the 2018 to 2019 funding year, will enable more eligible adults to access AEB funding.
