ELCAS Service Leaver Packages

The Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme (ELC) provides financial support towards retraining to those leaving the armed forces. This ELCAS funding can be used to obtain Level 3+ qualifications. As an approved ELCAS provider, Lynher Training offer a range of packages for the funding tiers.

In some cases, in order to provide the basic prerequisites for the Level 3 training, Lynher Training include a co-funded Level 2 starter package as part of the Level 3 package.

All training takes place in Devon and Cornwall. Lynher Training can provide these packages to service leavers from anywhere in the UK who wish to come and stay in the area (accommodation is not provided). Training can be arranged in weekly or fortnightly blocks.(Find the latest L3F&A theory course dates here > http://lynhertraining.com/l3fa/)
