Childcare Funding

Care to Learn Childcare Support – students aged under 20

Students aged under 20 at the start of their course can apply for childcare support from the Care to Learn scheme. For further information please call the Care to Learn Learner Support Helpline on 0800 121 8989. For further details and to apply online.

Childcare Support – students aged 20 or over

The Childcare Fund is available to students aged 20 or over on 31st August 2017, who are studying on eligible courses, and where the household income was £25,000(net) or less in the 2016/17 tax year.

- Help may be given for your child(ren) to attend a OFSTED registered childcare provider, whilst you are attending your timetabled lessons.
- Students will be required to meet 20% of Childcare costs and maximum limits apply.

The Childcare Fund is very limited, early applications are strongly advised and support is subject to funds available. Where students are applying for an Advanced Learner Loan to meet their course fees then the ALL must be approved before we can consider any childcare support.
