LEARNING SUPPORT

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE:

16-19 Bursary:
If you are aged 16-19 you could qualify for a Knowsley FACE Bursary. These bursaries provide financial support to learners to purchase equipment, materials and other course related costs. The Bursary Award grants up to £1200.00 depending on personal circumstances.

Discretionary Learner Support Funds (DLSF):
DLSF are administered by the service to support learners who are experiencing financial hardship with course related costs. This funding is only available to learners aged 19+ and who are enrolled on an accredited course and subject to eligibility criteria. DLSF is a discretionary fund and due to the limited nature of the fund, meeting the criteria does not guarantee funding. For further information and advice concerning these additional funds please contact Liz Leigh, Business & Inclusion Manager (Deputy) on 443 2066 or by email liz.leigh@knowsley.gov.uk

Additional Learning Support:
This is available to support learners on accredited programmes who may have specific needs. This support may include requiring specialist equipment/resources, specialist teaching support, specialist software and support with learning difficulties, e.g. dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, visual impairment, hearing impairment, 1-2-1 classroom support or other. It can also support any learner who requires materials in alternative formats, e.g. Braille, audio tape or large print. If you require support, ask your Tutor or Community Education Officer (contact details for your centre’s Community Education Officer can be found on page 7). Alternatively, contact Liz Leigh on 443 2066 or by email liz.leigh@knowsley.gov.uk.
