Mobilising the UK workforce

About UpSkillUK

The #UpSkillUK movement is based on the principal of mobilising the UK workforce through education and vocational skills. As part of the movement learndirect offers everyone access to a range of free/fully-funded courses to improve their employability prospects.

When you sign up to the movement, you will be able to use our mobile learning platform (ATOM) to access a range of courses, including:

  • English, maths (free for Entry Level 1, Entry Level 2 and Entry Level 3 – charges may apply for Level 1 and Level 2)
  • A range of employability courses
  • A range of life skills courses

By making elements our learning mobile free to our learners we are seeking to transform education by engaging our learners, widening participation and improving outcomes for our learners.
