They teach in-demand skills, to people with limited or no experience.  Upon graduation, students will have the skills to secure better-paid roles in growing industries.  Alternatively, students can use their new skills to start or grow their own businesses. The scheme makes it possible for employers to fill vacancies where there are skills shortages or to upskill their existing workforce.
