    Hi all! So I'm starting a Level 3 course in Sept, I'm 25 so I know I need to apply for the Advanced learner loan to cover tuition fees but I was wondering if anyone knew much about the Learner support bursary provided by the college. I have 2 children who would both need to be in nursery 4 days a week which on my partners wage will be impossible, it would amount to a whopping 10K a year!!
    Has anyone received any help with childcare using the Learner support bursary? Does anyone know the average amount you can get?
    Really want to do this course but I'm so worried about childcare 😐

    Thanks all, Lis

    Hi Lis,

    Yes, you may apply to get money from the Loan Bursary Fund after you’ve received a letter approving your Advanced Learner Loans
    .

    The money can help pay for things like:
    • Accommodation and travel
    • Course materials and equipment
    • Childcare
    • Classroom assistance for a disability or learning difficulty - once you’re assessed by your college or training provider

    Apply to your college or training provider, each one has its own application process. How much you get depends on the provider’s scheme and your circumstances. Speak to student services if you need support with your application.

    Regards Rona
