This Guide gives an overview of the funding available from August 2007 for learners or potential learners and is a useful guide to practitioners giving advice to others.
If you are thinking about starting a course, it's a good idea to plan ahead and to be aware of the costs in advance.
Whatever your age, abilities or family responsibilities you can apply to get help as there are many sources of funding available. One or more of them may well apply to you, whether you want to:
- stay on at school;
- go to college or university;
- study full-time or part-time; or
- learn while you are working.
A new national service to provide you with funding information is being run by Learndirect Scotland. Call them on 0808 100 9000 or visit their website atwww.learndirectscotland.com
