1. Funding for those with no previous qualifications (Work Placed Upskill) on our City & Guilds 2365 Course

We are able to provide funding for students who have not previously obtained a level 2 qualification and are looking to take a level 2 course. See below for more details. If you left school without 5 GCSE's graded A-C then this funding stream could be ideal for you.

In order to access this funding you must be:

Be aged 19 or over

Be employed (Includes self employed)

Highest level of any qualifications held must be below level 2

Be a resident of an EU country or have the right to live & work in the UK

Be living or working in the South East region (See the map above)

This funding is only available on our City & Guilds 2365 Course which is the ideal starting place for those looking to fully qualify as an electrician.  All courses must be completed by 01/05/2014.

If you are applying for funding based on not having a previous Level 2 qualification you must sign a declaration to confirm this. If they have 5 or more grade A-C GCSE’s or any higher level qualifications, this is classed as a level 2

If you are unsure if you could qualify for funding we are here to help. Simply call 01293 529777 or 0800 8564448 and speak with a course advisor today.

 2. Funding for people who have been made redundant in the South East Region

**Important Note: We currently have no more allocations for this funding as of 10/09/2014.

Students must live in one of the following counties in order to qualify.

West Sussex

East Sussex







Isle of Wight

** Students who live and work in Greater London are not eligible.

If you live in this area then there are a number of options available:

If you have recently been made redundant we can access funding to reduce the cost of your training with Trade Skills 4U. The level of reduction will depend on the number of courses taken with us. Your redundancy must be dated within six months of the start of the course.

In order to qualify you must be able to provide a copy of your redundancy letter from your previous employer on their headed paper. As long as you can supply this and live within our catchment area we will take care of all the paperwork for you and you will simply have to pay a reduced price for your course.

The amount you will receive will vary depending on your application and is usually a partial amount of the course cost. All awards are based on your individual circumstances and course booked. All courses must be completed by 01/05/2014. Please contact us for more information on 01293 529777.
