Gas Training funding changes – is your gas training course affordable?
With the many changes to the government funding from apprenticeships to the advanced learning loans, it is no wonder you might question whether you are eligible for the funding and if not, whether you can afford your gas training course?
From 2017, only FE colleges and training providers with SFA direct contracts will be able to offer courses with Advanced Learning Loans. Gas Training at Kier has already started the application process.
Until then, we are dependent on prime contractors offering us a subcontract arrangement. This has caused delays and has often left our learners with a period of uncertainty. So we wanted to look at alternative low cost loans that might be of interest to you.
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 gas training the best experience it can be for you from day one.
GoCompare.com and moneysavingsexpert.com offer you a low cost alternative to student loans. 0% interest credit cards might also be an option for you as well as the Government backed Career Development Loan. £6000 is a large investment in yourself, and we are committed to ensuring our L3 Diploma in Gas is the right course for you, as well as affordable.
