Is funding available?

Funding may be available through the Education and Skills Funding Agency but will be subject to their eligibility rules.  We estimate that the Bridging Programme will take between 12 and 20 weeks to complete. Older learners (aged 24+) will be eligible for loans only.  Some HEE areas have funded running costs to support partnerships. Based on current ESFA funding for 2017-18, costs are around £700 per learner.
