The MOD’s Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) promotes lifelong learning among members of the Armed Forces. The scheme provides financial support in each of a maximum of three separate financial years for higher level learning of a nationally recognised qualification at Level three or above or, if pursued overseas, an approved international equivalent qualification with an approved learning provider.

Forthcoming changes to the ELC will see service leavers able to claim on their entitlement to ELC for up to ten years after service. More information can be found here.
