The MoD Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme : Changes


The MOD promotes learning among members of the armed forces and the veterans’ community by providing what are known as Learning Credits, through the Enhanced Learning Credits scheme and Further Education and Higher Education scheme.  Both of these entitle Service personnel and Service leavers to receive financial help with the cost of their learning.

As of 1 April 2016 there has been some changes to the schemes to make them more accessible and to enable people to use them to gain personal and professional qualifications in a more flexible way, both while serving and after transition to civilian life.
