About the adult learning service
The funding used to support our adult learning comes from the Skills Funding Agency which procures and manages match funding training activity funded by European Social Funds.
About our service
The Bedfordshire Employment and Skills Service (BESS) provides opportunities for adults to get involved in learning within the community. In particular, we aim to work with people who have not achieved a level 2 (or equivalent) qualification and/or are unemployed.
The BESS adult learning programme can help you:
- get back into learning
- gain skills and qualifications to help you into work
- gain skills and qualifications to help you progress at work
