Discretionary Learner Support Fund

If you're unemployed or on a low income and would like to sign up for a Skills and Qualifications course, you can apply for financial support from the Discretionary Learner Support Fund

To apply for this support you must:

  • Be joining an accredited course (one leading to a qualification) and is run by Norfolk Community Learning Services
  • Be unemployed or receiving a gross annual income below £25,000
  • Not be in full time education elsewhere

How the funding can help you

  • Help with the cost of travel to and from your classes
  • Help with the cost of essential course materials
  • Payment for Ofsted registered childcare while you attend your classes (This is for applicants aged 20+ only. If you are aged 19 we can help you apply for Care to Learn funding.)
  • Help towards the cost of course fees if a fee concession does not apply

If you've chosen a course and are ready to apply for funding you can download an application form. Or you can contact our Learner Support Fund Co-ordinator on 01603 306527 or by email at dlsf@norfolk.gov.uk.
