Funding your Course

Here are some of the current projects and options for you to help fund your next course.

Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct) – is provided by Welsh Government and supports individuals living in Wales to gain new skills, overcome obstacles and improve their chances of returning to work in the shortest time possible following redundancy.

Personal Learning Accounts – Personal Learning Accounts are free courses designed to equip you with the skills and qualifications that local employers are looking for to help you take advantage of skills shortages and get your career moving.

KickStart Scheme – The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create job placements for 16-24 year olds who are claiming Universal Credit. As a gateway representative, Pembrokeshire College will partner with local businesses to create the minimum requirement of 30 job opportunities for each application to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Student Finance – find out more about Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), Welsh Government Learning Grant (WGLG), Financial Contingency Fund, Traineeship Bursary, Higher Education Government Loans and more options from our student finance department.

The Danny Fellows Trust (external site) – This loan fund aims to enlarge the pool of appropriately skilled labour available to local businesses in the Energy, Engineering and Construction sectors. This will be achieved by providing loans to individuals living in Pembrokeshire to gain additional skills and industry recognised qualifications that fall outside established funding mechanisms.
