The Skills Network

GMB has partnered with The Skills Network to offer our members access to accredited Level 1-4* courses and FREE CPD short courses to boost skills and confidence. 

Because of the different ways adult education is funded in the UK, we have divided this page into the four nations. 

England   Wales  Scotland  Northern Ireland

Please select the nation you live in for more details. There is also a section for our FREE CPD short courses and discounts towards Level 3 & Level 4 courses. 

* not all courses are fully funded and are subject to availability and eligibility.
