If you’re not eligible for government funding or decide the Apprenticeship route isn’t for you, you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learning Loan for this qualification at level 3 — please ask us for details or click here for more information.
The Skills funding agency is a Co-Financing Organisation with a programme to tackle worklessness and workplace skills issues. To be able to draw down the ESF funds for projects, the skills funding agency needs to be able to fund an equal amount of similar activity from its other budgets – this is known as match funding. Your Apprenticeship may be match funded.
