Professional and Career Development Loans are commercial bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning. You may apply to borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning. The Young People’s Learning Agency will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. You will then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loans product. The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.
As the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, it should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.
