Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme

ETS is seeking approval from ELCAS to offer eligible courses under the Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme and is not yet an approved ELCAS provider.

Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme

The ELC scheme is designed for members of the Armed Forces, providing financial support for higher level training courses. ETS is currently going through the ELCAS Approved Centre process and are looking to support individuals wanting to access financial support under the ELC scheme.

Our ELCAS Training Provider number is 10319.

Please note that whilst ETS is an looking to become an ELCAS Approved Training Provider, not all of our courses can be supported by the ELC scheme. ELC funding is only available for programmes that result in a Nationally Recognised Qualification at level three or above on the National Qualification and Credit Framework. If you call a member of our team today on +44 (0)1392 445444 to discuss your specific requirements in more detail and signpost you to an already approved provider if possible.

The ELC Process

First you must register to become a Scheme Member and accrue a sufficient amount of service before you can submit a claim.

  • Select a relevant course (once we are approved) from our range of ELCAS approved level 3 or above professional courses. Feel free to contact us to discuss your options.
  • Complete and submit an ELC claim, approved by an authorised Education Staff Member if you are in service or your Single Service Representative if you are out of service.  For further details regarding claiming out of service, ex-service personnel should read the information on the  ELCAS Link . ELCAS will then check your eligibility for funding and if approved will send you a Claim Authorisation Note (CAN).
  • Contact Exponential Training (ELCAS Approved Training Provider) to enrol and to make your personal deposit contribution (20%).
  • Finally, upon completion of the programme, you must complete a Course Evaluation Form via the ELCAS website.


 To claim Enhanced Learning Credits funding you are required to complete the required length of eligible service before completing the ELC claim form and prior to commencing the course of study for which ELC support is being claimed.

Before being eligible to make an ELC claim, individual scheme members must have completed not less than four years eligible service to claim at the lower tier of funding (up to £1,000 per claim instalment) and eight years service for the higher tier (up to £2,000 per claim instalment). Only service accumulated since 1 April 2000 may be counted as eligible service for the purposes of the ELC scheme.

You are entitled to make three ELC claims in total, however you can only make one claim per financial year (1 April – 31 March) but can also claim up to ten years after leaving the services.

Claimants are required to pay a minimum of 20% of the course fee for each ELC claim and the MOD will fund the remainder up to the claimants tier limit.

Retrospective ELC claims are not permitted, claim forms must be received by ELCAS at least 15 clear working days prior to the course start date / registration date. You must ensure that you have enough time to receive the Claim Authorisation Note (CAN) to present to your chosen ELCAS Approved Training Provider before the course starts.

It is important that you do not set up a loan/credit agreement for the full amount under any circumstances.

Do not pay any money or book the course before you receive your Claim Authorisation Note (CAN).

“Fantastic session today with Daz Davey from Currere Performance Coaching and Education + Training Skills working on Attitude – The Game Changer with some of the team. Definitely recommend to any company. Amazing how attitude influences you more than knowledge & skills!”

“We attended the GDPR Course with ETS which was a great learning curve for us. Not only did it open our eyes to internal data which needs securing but answered questions regarding data we hold on behalf of clients. The documents provided by ETS will be a massive help and save us hours of time. A course we can’t recommend highly enough!”


“Really insightful and informative course. Had little knowledge or  confidence on the new regulations but now feel confident we can put in place the key structures to ensure we are in alignment with the new regulations. Was great to hear from individuals who have put in place structures and were kind enough to offer resource to help with our own workplace. Great course- would recommend.”
