Careers start here.

Take control of your future!

Harlow College has been awarded significant funding by the UK Government to support Harlow residents by investing in skills, local business, the local community and by supporting people back into employment or helping to further their career prospects, in a project which will run from January to June 2022.

The project, which is unique to Harlow residents, aims to improve the prosperity and productivity of Harlow and support the town’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic through providing adults with access to good quality information, advice and guidance as well as financial support with the tuition costs of higher-level training courses.

The project is for adults wishing to develop their skills to gain employment or for those already in employment looking to progress their career. The College will manage a training voucher scheme providing up to £1000 for each learner, making training available to many people who would otherwise have been unable to access it due to the cost of tuition fees.
