Get Help to Retrain service continues its phased rollout and is now available in six major cities and regions across England.

From 16th October, the Government’s Get Help to Retrain service will be offered to adults across the Leeds City Region, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, and the Heart of the South West to empower even more people to retrain and get on the path to a new job.

The pioneering online service is the first of a series of products that will make up the Government’s National Retraining Scheme, which is being developed to support eligible adults – particularly those whose jobs could change because of new technologies such as AI and automation – to kick start a new career.

The service helps adults identify their existing skills, explore different types of job opportunities and find training courses to gain the skills they need to progress in the workplace. The National Careers Service is also providing dedicated support from qualified careers advisers to guide people through the process and provide expert advice.
