Recent government cuts to adult education has meant that many have found it difficult to get back into education, learn new skills and gain new qualifications to potentially change their career path. However, this could now change with the introduction of loans for adult learners.
In 2016/2017 the government will be introducing loans for learners aged 19 and over which will be similar to those launched in 2013 for learners aged 24 and over. The loans will mean that those who wish to study to develop their careers and add to their qualifications may now be able to do so at colleges such as Solihull College & University Centre.
With the help of the loan learners can study courses such as Accounting, Beauty Therapy, Computing, Education & Teacher Training, Engineering, and Health & Social Care amongst many others at Solihull College. By studying towards a new qualification learners can invest in their future and open doors to a variety of career opportunities as well as fitting round learners’ needs.
The finance team at Solihull College will be able to see if you qualify for the new learning loan, provide advice and solutions to potential funding issues that learners may have as well as explaining the repayments of the loan. Both campuses will also be open for Adult Enrolment Evenings on Tuesday 14th June at the Blossomfield Campus and Wednesday 15th June at the Woodlands Campus for adults wishing to further their education.
