People across Blackpool South will get the chance to retrain and find new, well-paid jobs as part of the Government’s new Lifetime Skills Guarantee.

The plans, unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a speech today, will provide adults in England without an A-Level or equivalent qualifications the opportunity to take up a free, fully funded college course.

Alongside this, the government is also making higher education loans more flexible, allowing people to space out their study across their lifetimes and take more high-quality vocational courses.

In conjunction with Blackpool Council, the Government have decided to impose additional restrictions on Blackpool which will be effective from Saturday. These restrictions will bring us into line with the rest of Lancashire who had extra restrictions imposed last week.

When the decision was made to impose additional restrictions on the rest of Lancashire at the beginning of last week, our local infection rate on the 15th September was 23 cases per 100,000 people.
