24+ Loans for Students
If you are 24 or over and starting a further education course at level 3 or above from 1st August 2013 onwards you will either have to pay for the course yourself or apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan to pay for your tuition fees. There are no upfront fees and you will pay nothing for your education until you complete your course and earn over £21,000 per year.
24+ Loans for Employers
Research shows that on average further education courses give learners and employers substantial benefits when they undertake advanced and higher level qualifications. It is also in the interest of employers to support their employees, as they benefit from more skilled and productive staff. From August 2013 loans are being introduced to support students aged 24 and over to take advanced and higher level courses in further education colleges. This covers all provision at level 3 or above including Advanced and Higher Apprenticeship frameworks.
Employers can now apply for loans to support their training needs which can free up your staff development budgets whilst still allow staff to undertake appropriate training.
