The government has started to roll out the first part of the National Retraining Scheme, Get Help to Retrain, in 6 areas across England.

Get Help to Retrain is a digital service that will help users to understand their current skills, explore alternative occupations that they could do and find and sign up to the training they need to access opportunities for a broad range of good jobs.

Since the start of the roll out of Get Help to Retrain in July 2019, over 1,000 users have tested the service. The service will be further tested and improved in 2020.

Other products are being developed that will sit alongside Get Help to Retrain, collectively making up the full National Retraining Scheme service.
