  • Have you had difficulty finding work within your sector due to a skills gap?
  • Is your current role at risk unless you acquire new skills?
  • Have you agreed with a NABS coach that this course is suitable and will support you to find work?

  • All Upskilling grant applications are reviewed and a decision will be made by the NABS Support Team
  • We aim to share the outcome of your application within a month of receiving your completed form and all paperwork

Please note that our grants are designed to provide support to those who are out of work or whose role is at risk unless they upskill. As part of your application for financial support you will be asked to provide documents relating to your current financial situation. As a charity we are required to carry out due diligence in line with grant applications. This may mean that you are asked to provide clarity or further information relating to your personal circumstances, including your finances.

If you choose to do this, we will safely remove all information relating to your application from our systems.
