ELCAS Funding for Health and Safety Training Courses

As an Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) registered provider, those service personnel who qualify under the ELC scheme are able to obtain funding towards virtually all of our health and safety training courses, including the NEBOSH General Certificate, NEBOSH Diploma courses and health and safety NVQ qualifications.

Administered by ELCAS (Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Scheme), those who have been serving in the forces for a minimum of four years are able to claim funding towards higher level learning courses which result in a qualification of at least Level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) in England and Wales, or at least Level 6 on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Approved international equivalent qualifications are also acceptable. Training providers must be registered with ELCAS as an approved ELC provider in order for a claim to be acceptable.

ELC - Funding for health and safety training

After leaving the forces, many personnel who wish to get into an industry such as health and safety will need to have a relevant qualification. However, with courses and qualifications costing hundreds or even thousands of pounds, many will not be able to afford to enrol straight after leaving, and would perhaps have to spend years trying to save enough money to be able to achieve the qualification they need. As such, the ELC scheme can make all the difference between a person being able to enrol on a course and not, and allows then to achieve it and get straight into their industry and job roles of choice. There are currently two tiers of funding available. Those with a minimum of four years of service can claim up to £1,000 and those with at least eight years of service can claim up to £2,000. Personnel can still claim funding through ELCAS up to ten years after they have left the services.
