How does Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) funding work?

ELC funding is governed by the MOD, the details of which can be subject to change so the information we provide should only be used as a general guide to help you get started.

The Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) can give you the most up-to-date information about the scheme and the funding application process. You can call them on 01452 558390 or email

Generally speaking, most Armed Forces personnel can apply for funding after registering to join the scheme. Currently, you would have completed over 4 years (lower tier) and 8 years (higher tier) of service to be eligible. Completing 4 years allows you to apply for funding to take training up to a maximum of £1000 and for 8 years, up to £2000. ELC funding will give you 80% of the full value of the training.

ELC funding covers the VAT of your course but not for most other expenses and it will only apply to approved courses by an approved provider.
