Sometimes when you’re on a low income, it can feel like you are trapped in a catch 22 situation, you want to improve your qualifications to get a better income, but to do that you have to fund your own learning, which you can’t do because you’re on a low income. And so, the cycle repeats over and over, and you can almost feel trapped.
Even with the available grants and loans out there, like the Advanced Learner Loan, you may find that they still don’t fit quite what’s right for you or the acceptance requirements for the funding doesn’t match your situation.
This is where Oxford Learning College’s LIS Scheme can help. We are offering low income students the opportunity to study courses with us at discounted prices with weekly instalment plans. From as little at £10 per week, you can be studying a Professional Level 3 Diploma or Fast Track A-Level to help you get into the new career you are looking for.
