Personal Learning Account (PLA) Green

If you are over 19, living in Wales and are employed/self-employed you may be eligible to receive fully-funded courses via PLA Green

What is PLA Funding?

A Personal Learning Account will allow you to study part-time around your existing responsibilities.  It will enable you to obtain the skills and qualifications you need to change your career or progress in your current job. Your study will take place through a college in Wales either online or face to face or a combination of them both.

Personal Learning Accounts provide flexible courses and qualifications, which are fully funded by the Welsh Government.

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.

Did you knowif you are under formal notice of redundancy, or have have been made unemployed in the past 6 months, you can also access fully funded courses using the Welsh Governments ReAct+ training programme.

Who is eligible?

Support under the Personal Learning Account (PLA) Green scheme is available for individuals who are:

  • Aged 19 years or over
  • Living in Wales
  • Currently employed/self-employed earning any amount – no salary cap

Did you know we also offer fully funded IT courses via the PLA Digital funding scheme which also has no salary cap.

What courses can I do?

Due to changes in Welsh Government funding criteria, we currently have no courses which are eligible to receive PLA Green funding. Take a look at our PLA Funding and PLA Digital pages for a range of funded courses we can currently offer.

“Highly Recommended”

A complex course subject was delivered clearly and with great passion and enthusiasm by our tutor. Subjects were explained in clear, real-life examples. Without doubt, I'm sure my successful result is in large part due to his experience and skill in this area.

“Five Star Quality Course”

I received all the resources in advance which helped me prep for the course. The tutor was engaging and explained complex topics really well. The exam coaching was a unique selling point for me as it got me prepared for the exams so that nerves were less of a factor. Great communication throughout, thank you Tony and the whole team.
