At Essex Training Solutions, we are proud to work in partnership with Specialist Trade Courses to deliver high quality training in vocational sectors. Through this partnership we have access to advanced learner loan funding, a government initiative, helping you spread the cost of your training, with no credit checks and no repayments until you earn £25,725 per year.

Spreading the cost of your course

We understand that sometimes, loan funding isn’t possible, or the option that you would like to take. In these instances, we can help you to spread the cost of your training with an interest free payment plan.

All details of the terms and conditions of this payment plan can be found on our Enrolment terms and conditions page.
