funding

Funding can be complicated, so why not let us take the strain. Our trained advisers can give you guidance and support.

What is Fully Funded?

You do not have to pay for Fully Funded training because the government pays direct to the training provider. We are expert in working out if your are eligible so contact your nearest Acacia centre for more information.

We have fully funded training in 2017-18 in the following:

  • Maths Functional Skills up  to level 2
  • English Functional Skills up to Level 2
  • Employability training for unemployed local job seekers.

Employer/Government Funded Apprenticeships

From May 2017, employers and the government share the cost of the training. Apprentices do not pay for their own training.

We offer free Information, Advice and Guidance sessions to all prospective learners. We can help you to find the training that suits your needs.

Adult Learner Loans – No problem.

Adult Learner loans help learners aged 19 and over in England, studying at Level 3 or higher, to pay the fees for their qualification. As an approved training provider, we can give you all the information you need to apply for your loan.

It’s easy to apply – household income isn’t taken into account and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until your annual income level is over £21,000. Once you earn over this amount you pay back 9% of the earnings you receive above this figure. You apply for the loan through the Student Loan company. It is just like applying for Higher Education degrees. The Student Loan Company check eligibility and approve your application.
