What is ELCAS funding?
The Ministry of Defence’s Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) scheme enables members of the armed forces to claim financial support towards lifelong learning. The ELCAS scheme is designed to help those in the military looking to progress their career as well as those leaving the forces and moving into a new career. This allows them to study a nationally recognised level 3 course or above with an approved learning provider during their time with the armed forces and up to 10 years after leaving.
Many members of the armed forces start planning their post-military career years before they leave. For those that haven’t thought about that yet, there’s never a bad time to start thinking about what’s the best path for their development. A good way to do this is by looking at desired career paths and skill sets, then picking from the range of courses we offer that are included in the ELCAS scheme, this could be something from accounting and bookkeeping to business start-up and personal training.
