Professional and Career Development Loans

The government currently offers this scheme which are bank loans to pay for courses and training that help with your career or help get you into work.

You may be able to borrow between £300 and £10,000.  Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate and the government pays interest while you’re studying.  You don’t have to repay the loan until you have completed the course.
