You pay back at a rate of only 9% of the difference between the threshold and what you earn.
Please see below some Frequently asked questions if you have any other question please contact us via the form below
How Much is it?
The amount depends on the course, the fees charged by the training organisation and amount set by the government. The minimum Advanced Learner Loan amount is £300. We will confirm the cost and the amount that can be covered by a loan before enrolment.
Can I get a loan if I am unemployed?
Yes, provided you meet the eligibility requirements see eligibility above.
My income varies each week how do I pay back my loan?
The loan repayments are deducted at the same time as your Tax and National Insurance but only when your earnings are above the weekly threshold. Loan repayments are calculated as a percentage of the difference between the threshold and what you have earned.
I am self-employed how do I pay back my loan?
If you are self-employed HMRC will work out how much you pay from your tax return. You then pay it at the same time as you pay your tax return.
Can I pay back my loan early?
Yes, and there is no penalty for early repayment.
