Hi Michelle, I'm having the same problem, as my husband works full time I am unable to claim for any help but I contacted the Career Development Loans[CDL] & their sending out info & application forms. The loans,as far as I'm aware,are from either Barclays or Co-Op bank[your choice] & can cover the cost of courses,kit,travel. You have to do the groundwork finding suitable courses & the provider should have a registration code from the CDL.Hope this helps, I have been going in circles to get funding & still trying to decide what course to do, Beauty/Makeup/Colour or Crystal Therapy or do a refresher in Nails.
Hi Ladies,

Have you been intouch with your local chamber of commerce? I got intouch with st helens chamber and they send someone out who will help you get whats available.
For me there was the option to pay 40% and get 60% paid for me but they will go through it all with you.

Good luck xx
Business Link will offer you funding, generally 40 or 50%.
But be warned you will have to fill a few forms in and justify why you want to go on the courses.
Hi I have just joined the Business Link website. Any idea on where to go to get started on getting funding?! Thanks
