Careers Learning Pilot

As part of a Careers Learning Pilot scheme, Petroc, in partnership with Learn Devon, is able to offer the following 8 courses either FREE or at a 25% or 75% discount.

This ONE YEAR ONLY pilot gives you the opportunity to raise your professional proficiency to Levels 3, 4 and 5 depending on what subject you are looking to upskill in.

For some of the courses you may need prior learning/achievement but for others you may be able to enrol with no previous experience; our staff will be able to help you with advice and guidance on what option is suitable for you.

The funding is dependent on eligibility but for those qualifications that attract a subsidy of 25% or 75% you may still also be able to take advantage of an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the costs. However, the majority of applicants will be able to get the costs covered as part of the Pilot.

This exciting Pilot gives adults who are in work, or returning to work, a real opportunity to study at a higher level without a financial burden.

All the courses will start in September 2018 and will be completed within 12 months. Each course is delivered slightly differently so you will need to look at the options to find out more about entry requirements, as well as what time commitment will be required of you.

Places are limited so please get in touch soon to express an interest.
