You could receive financial help to support you with the cost of coming to college including food, uniform, equipment, books and childcare.
If you have a household income of £36,665 or below or someone in the household is in receipt of benefits, we may be able to support you financially.
All funds are distributed on a needs basis and are subject to affordability. The fund has three levels of support based on income.
Funding is available to students studying a course which is funded by the ESFA. You cannot receive this support if you are studying a HE course, Apprenticeship or any other course not funded by the ESFA.
Meals – Your college card can be activated with meal credits to spend in Munch or Starbucks.
Equipment and Uniform – Essential equipment and uniform can be funded if it is a requirement for the course.
Trips and Enrichment – Trips and enrichment can be funded if offered as part of the course.
Work Placement – Travel to work placement can be funded if needed.
Travel – In extenuating circumstances, transport costs can be funded. This is only available to students who are not able to catch the college coaches and is decided on an individual basis.
Childcare – For students aged 20 and over, you can apply for support towards Childcare whilst you are attending college. To receive a form for childcare, please contact Natalie Rawlins on 0121 602 7777 Ext. 7519 or email email@example.com.
For students under 20 years of age in need of Childcare support, please refer to www.gov.uk/care-to-learn.
Any payments made to you will be paid by BACS. Bank details must be in the student’s name. Direct payments to a student are only made when a student meets certain eligibility criteria.
If you are 16-18 years old on 31/08/2020 and in care or recently left care or you are personally in receipt of benefits, you may be able to access a bursary paid weekly, of up to £1,200 per year. For a confidential discussion, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
