Funding Eligibility

Distance Learning

The majority of our distance learners are self-funded or their employer pays for part, or all, of their course. There are clear tax savings (VAT, PAYE, NIC) where your employer pays for your training, rather than you. However this has to be arranged properly and in line with the tax regulations.

We try to make our courses more affordable by:

  1. offering three distinct training packages – Basic, Standard and Premium – please see the “What support will I get” page, for more information.
  2. our easy payment plan of a deposit followed by a standing order over 6 months

There are also numerous funding streams “available” to support a variety of claimants. However the funding arena can be a bit of a maze. You can spend a lot of time researching it only to find that you are not eligible.

The most obvious routes are:

  • Apprenticeships
  • ELCAS
  • Advanced Learning Loans (unfortunately we are not able to offer these at this time)

You can click on the appropriate links (opposite) for further details on each of these funding routes, or you can simply click on the links shown below:
