NVQ Funding Watch
I'm currently full time employed after leaving college and finishng my A levels but want to do an NVQ in hairdressing which is being offered at a training salon in the city centre. Because im 21 and full time they say i have to pay a course fee of £840 which i simply cannot afford. Is there any government funding which can help me with this?
Is it an NVQ Level 2 or 3 and how long is the contract?
Frustratingly i believe that unless you are on a benefit you have to pay for the qualification based on your age and existing qualifications. The course price itself is very good for nvq2 hairdressing so i really hope that you find the funding somewhere. Fingers crossed for you!
Can you speak to the provider (college, normally) of the course? it's not reasonable for you to pay £840 up front. I know the funding has changed; but I think the loans (not the ones from student finance for uni or the career development loan) are only for people over 24.
Could you tell me more about these loans please? I read somewhere that for over 24s you can get a loan similar to that which you get as a uni student whereby you don't have to pay back X ammount until you're earning Y. This might affect me with a few college courses I want to go on.
Not read through it properly yet.
