Personal Learning Accounts

Personal Learning Accounts – Part-time studying to enhance your current job or kick-start a brand new career in sectors with skills shortages…

What is a Personal Learning Account?

A Personal Learning Account (PLA) is a programme launched by the Welsh Government to access flexible part-time courses with the aim of obtaining the skills and qualifications you would need to change careers or to upskill within your current area of employment to access a wider range of job opportunities and/or gain employment at a higher level.

You’ll be able to get new skills and qualifications that local employers need to help you progress your current career or change it altogether to take advantage of skills shortages and boost your chances of kickstarting a career change or enhance your career. All of the courses on offer through a Personal Learning Account are being funded by the Welsh Government.

These flexible fully-subsidised courses will allow you to study and work around your family and employment commitments.

Courses available fall under these sectors:

  • Construction
  • Health
  • Engineering
  • Digital
  • Financial Services
  • Creative
  • Tourism and Leisure
