Grants and funding

The funding is from the Department of Education (DfE); as part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs.

Below is a breakdown of the costs for different types of learners:

  • Recently lost employment or income
  • Want to return to work following redundancy, health issues, childcare etc.

b) Self-employed learners or sole traders – Free place

These learners can join the programme for FREE, as they will receive 100% grant funding for the course and the cost of the DMI exam. However, you will need to complete an additional Training Needs Analysis form and provide evidence of how you have applied your learnings to grow your business.
