Good Work for All

Part of the London Recovery Programme, identifing a grand challenge to restore confidence in the city, minimise the impact on communities and build back better the city’s economy and society.

What is Good Work for All? 

The purpose of the Good Work for All Fund is to put in place additional AEB provision and activities to provide Londoners most affected by the pandemic with skills that will help
them to access good work – as well as to meet other mission objectives, such as supporting the green recovery or tackling digital exclusion. Applicants need to demonstrate
how their project will fund provision that:

Aligns to London’s Recovery Programme and supports the priority groups particularly impacted by the pandemic;

  • Adds value to existing AEB provision;
  • Is supported by clear evidence of local, sub-regional and/or London-wide demand for sectoral skills and job creation potential; 
  • Is shaped or supported by sector employers, business and other representatives;
  • Includes partnerships with employers/business, civil society organisations and public bodies (e.g. Job Centre Plus, London boroughs)


As set out in The Rules, the AEB supports four legal entitlements to full funding for eligible adult learners. These enable eligible learners to be fully funded for the following qualifications:

  • English and maths, up to and including level 2, for individuals aged 19 and above, who have not previously attained a GCSE grade A* – C or grade 4, or higher, and/or
  • A first full qualification at level 2 for individuals aged 19 to 23, and/or
