What is ELCAS?
The MOD’s Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) promotes lifelong learning amongst Ex and current serving members of the Armed Forces. The scheme provides financial support in the form of a single up-front payment across three separate financial years used to enhance their career and job prospects when they leave, or have left the Military. Ex Forces personnel who are eligible can receive funding ranging from £1,000 to £2,000 depending on time served. This funding can only be used to fund regulated qualifications above Level 3 and must be delivered by an ELCAS approved provider.
