Choosing your Learning Provider

Your course of study must be delivered by an organisation that holds ELC Approved Learning Provider status and has your chosen course(s) approved for funding.

Selecting SEARCH FOR PROVIDER OR COURSE below lets you search the register of approved Providers and their approved courses. Depending on the information you enter your search results can be tailored, e.g. selecting PF FE/HE Approved under Advanced Search will only display Providers/courses that are approved for PF FE/HE funding. If you're specifically looking for courses delivered by Distance Learning ensure the Area Search is not selected.

Choose VIEW against any Provider in the search results to display key information along with relevant approved courses, dependant on the search criteria entered.

As the information for approved Providers and their courses is regularly updated a directory of all Providers/courses cannot be provided; please use the search facility to ensure you are viewing current information. 


Provider or Course not listed?

Not all learning organisations are listed; if you know where you would prefer to study and they aren't listed, you may wish to contact them directly and ask them to make an application (subject to qualifying criteria).

Only MOD approved courses will appear on the Provider's course listing on the ELCAS website. If your chosen course does not appear in the search results for an approved Learning Provider but would result in a level 3 (or above) nationally recognised qualification, please ask the Learning Provider to submit their course for approval by MOD via their online portal. Only approved courses can be selected when making a claim.


If your chosen Learning Provider is not following the ELC scheme policies please detail your complaint in writing via your Education Staff or Single Service Representative, their contact details can be found HERE

Please do not send any correspondence via post until further notice
