GMCA Devolved Adult Education Budget

Standguide and our supply chain partners deliver the devolved GMCA Adult Education Budget (AEB) across the Greater Manchester area.

The principle purpose of the AEB is to engage adults and provide them with the skills needed for entering and sustaining work, an apprenticeship / traineeship, or other further learning. In Greater Manchester, this means high quality provision that leads to demonstrable improvements in opportunities, positive outcomes for individuals and clear progression pathways for our residents, with a clear line of sight into the local labour market and future economic development opportunities.

We are currently delivering accredited qualifications in:

  • Warehousing & Storage
  • Forklift Truck Licences
  • Driving Goods Vehicles
  • Health & Social Care
  • Construction
  • CSCS Cards
