If you’re lucky enough to have your course or training funded by your employer, there are a number of things that you need to know.
Frequently Asked Questions
My employer agreed to fund the course when I enrolled
We will need to have evidence that they will agree to the charges which will need to be provided during your enrolment.
I have been asked to supply a letter of authorisation or purchase order, what does mean?
This must be a letter on company headed paper and addressed to the College with your name, and your employers agreement to be liable for the course fees for each academic year, along with relevant purchase orders if required. This must be signed by an authorised member of the company.
This letter/purchase order must be brought with you in order to enrol on your chosen course.
What happens if I leave my employer?
You need to ensure your Company letter makes it clear where liability lies in the event you leave their employment.
If your Employer has consented to cover all costs in the event of your leaving, then you may continue your course at no cost to yourself. If however your Employer has arranged with yourself that no further fees will be covered, then you will become personally liable for the balance whether you continue on the course or not. See the self-funding guidance for more information.
