IMPORTANT INFORMATION (update 09/08/16):
Please use the information below for your own research and watch this space for updates on finance options available to you:
From 2017, FE colleges and training providers with SFA direct contracts will be able to offer courses with Advanced Learning Loans. Gas Training at Kier (and Kier Services Ltd) are not in a position to offer the Advanced Learning Loan facility. We will continue to apply for the opportunities as they arise and will use this page to keep people informed.
You can consider some of the following options:
Many of you have expressly told us that it is the Kier quality, the Kier brand, the Kier guarantee of placement and interviews that mean you will not consider somewhere else and for that we thank you. We work hard to make our training the best experience it can be for you from day one throughout the full 5 months.
0% INTEREST CREDIT CARDS
0% interest credit cards might also be an option for you. £6000 is a large investment in yourself, and we are committed to ensuring our L3 Diploma course is the right course for you, and that it’s affordable as well.
CAREER DEVELOPMENT LOAN THROUGH THE GOVERNMENT
Don’t forget to check out the Professional & Career Development Loans – Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans to pay for courses and training that help with your career or help get you into work. You may be able to borrow between £300 and £10,000. Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate and the government pays interest while you’re studying.
