Service Leavers...

PPL Training Limited welcome people from all backgrounds to train at our centres and are delighted to be registered with various schemes assisting service leavers with their resettlement process.

Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC)

PPL Training are a registered training provider with the Enhanced Learning Credit Administration Service (often referred to as ELC or ELCAS).  The aim of the ELC is to promote "lifelong learning" amongst service personnel, providing the opportunity to claim up to £6000 towards retraining, either for a potential role within the armed forces, or for a future career upon leaving the services.  The ELC scheme contributes up to 80% towards courses and funding is only available for training towards higher level learning/nationally recognised qualifications at level 3 or above.

PPL Training's provider reference number with ELC is 2662.

Professional & Career Development Loans

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.  You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work).  The Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards.  The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses.  You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.  Because the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, they should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.  For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit www.direct.gov.uk/adultlearning or contact Careers Advice on 0800 100 900.

Our learning provider registration number is: 12292.
