Are you aged 19+ and looking to up-skill or gain a new qualification?

The 19+ advanced learner loan is available for people who want to study a level 3-6 qualification. The loan is to help you with course costs at a college or training provider in England; it is easy to apply for, doesn’t take your household income into account and doesn’t involve a credit check. This facility provides a fantastic opportunity to up-skill or gain a new qualification which we at Geason Training can deliver in the workplace. The amount you can borrow depends on your course, the fees charged by your college/training organisation and maximum amounts set by the government. A loan can be taken for the maximum amount to cover your fee or you can part-fund the course yourself. The repayment of your loan can be spread into small manageable amounts and start on the April following the completion of your course.
