Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme
FGI have partnered with the MoD under the Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme (ELC) to train anyone involved with the armed forces.
The ELC is an initiative to promote lifelong learning amongst the members of the armed forces and provides financial support available for higher level learning.
FGI provide accredited Project and Programme Management (PRINCE2®, MSP®, Agile and APM), Change Management, M_o_R® Risk Management and IT Service Management (ITIL®) qualifications which can aid your future development.
ELC & Resettlement
Preparing for resettlement can be quite daunting and should not be underestimated. That is why FGI have created bespoke training packages to help you gain the most out of your resettlement money and our dedicated advisors and trainers are here to help you along the way.
The ELC scheme provides financial support in the form of a single up-front payment in each of a maximum of three separate financial years. To join the ELC scheme you must complete and submit an application form either in your first twelve months from enlistment or in the window between eight and eight and a half years from enlistment. ELCs are available in two tiers: You must accumulate four years of eligible service to claim the Lower Tier (80% of the fees, up to a maximum of £1,000 per claim instalment) and eight years eligible service to claim the Higher Tier (80% of the fees, up to a maximum of £2,000 per claim instalment).
Each eligible claimant may make a total of three claims. These may include claims in both the lower and higher tier but not exceed three claims in total. Only one claim may be made for learning activities commencing in any one financial year.
Only service accumulated since 1 April 2000 may be counted as eligible service for the purposes of the ELC scheme. It is worth noting that eligible service must be completed before a claim can be made, i.e. the claim form must be signed after the service is completed.
(For those registering to join the scheme in the six month window between the eight and eight and a half year point, eligible service will only be accumulated from the eight year point (i.e. you must complete 12 years' service before being able to claim at the lower tier (up to £1,000 per claim instalment).
