Studying at College is more affordable than you think...
Do you feel that it’s time for a change? Do you want to progress your career, extend your competence at work or secure your future? If so, read on to see if you’re eligible for the Level 2 Entitlement Funding.
Level 2 Entitlement Funding Explained
This is a Government scheme aimed at 19-23 year olds studying your first Level 2 qualification. The scheme is designed to give learners the opportunity to study for a qualification that could boost your career prospects by accessing fully funded skills training, allowing you to gain new life skills and become better equipped for work in your chosen area. Please note that not all courses are covered by this scheme. Before enrolling on a course please check with the College for the latest information.
Not currently in employment
If you’re 19+ and out of work at the moment, but are interested in re-training or simply adding to your skill set, don’t worry, you can also apply and get access to free tuition and advice. If you are looking to find employment and need skills and training to do so, you may be eligible for the funding on a Level 2 funded course too, if you already receive a State Benefit.
If you are in work but earn less than £15,736.50 gross, you may also be eligible for the same free tuition. So if you want to start again with a new career path but need a qualification in order to do so, it’s now possible.
