Bursary Fund

Learners on the Foundation Learning programme may be eligible for financial support from the Education Funding Agency (EFA) Bursary Fund.

Any learner falling into the following groups may receive up to £1,200 per year, reduced pro-rata depending on the duration of the course:

  • In care learners
  • Learners who are care leavers
  • Learners in receipt of income support
  • Learners in receipt of BOTH Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance

Some evidence will be required.

Also, bursary funding of approx £7.50 per week will be provided to cover the incidental costs of taking part in Foundation Learning.

All the rules relating to bursary funding can be found via the attached link but if you don’t want to read this then you will get the chance to discuss bursary funding with one of our staff either when registering or at induction (or both).

Also, ITS will assist with your travel costs in the Barnsley Area.
