Enhanced Learning Credits, Further Education and Higher Education scheme changes

The MOD promotes learning among members of the armed forces and the veterans’ community by providing what are known as Learning Credits, through the Enhanced Learning Credits scheme and Further Education and Higher Educaion scheme.  Both of these entitle Service personnel and Service leavers to receive financial help with the cost of their learning.
From 1 April 2016 there will be some changes to the schemes to make them more accessible and to enable people to use them to gain personal and professional qualifications in a more flexible way, both while serving and after transition to civilian life.

Funding For Courses When Posted overseas

Current rules set by Student Finance England do not allow military spouses based overseas to access funding for training (a loan). AFF is keen to know whether military spouses based overseas would be more likely to undertake a distance learning course if the rules were changed to allow them access to funding from Student Finance England.
