This course previously qualified for ILA funding. A revised ILA scheme will come into effect in October 2017 and will be called an Individual Training Account (ITA). If you are eligible then you will still be entitled to funding of up to £200 per year towards a course. The differences are that you will only be able to do one course in any learner year, and that courses will be geared towards helping you with getting a job or progressing in your career.
