Why use Courses 4 Forces?
There are currently 178,000 members of our Armed Forces. All those who have served for four years or more from 1st April 2000 are entitled to up to £6,000 for Educational / Vocational courses with a minimum of level 3 NVQ.
Additional funding is now available to cover tuition fees for a first university degree.
Since inception of the ELC Scheme in April 2004, over 56,000 claims have been received and training payments of more than £65 million have been made.
The 2010 Defence Review outlined a reduction of c.18,000 personnel in the Forces establishment which will take place across 2011 – 2014 starting in September 2011. Many in the Forces are already starting to consider their future and looking to use their ELC’s immediately as a means of obtaining qualifications to enhance their skill‐set and credentials for future employment both within the Forces and the wider job market. The current climate makes this the ideal time to promote your services as an approved provider.
