PLAs provide a flexible and fully-funded learning opportunity to support employed individuals gain the right skills to either change careers, or progress in employment at a higher level. The courses are specifically designed to address vocational training in sectors where there is a skills shortage, to ensure the future needs of the economy are met.
At Bridgend College we offer a number of PLA courses in a range of areas:
- Business & Management
- Care & Childhood Studies
- Education & Teaching
- Health & Safety
Even though you may be eligible for funding for more than one PLA course, we can only accept one application per person at a time. If an application is successful for a course, you must complete this course before beginning another course. Check out our range of courses below.
