Enhanced Learning Credits: Frequently Asked Questions
Who signs the ELC claim on behalf of a service leaver?
The Single Service Representative needs to complete your form. Their contact information can be found on the ELC website.
How many Enhanced Learning Credits claims can I make?
You can make up to three claims, but only one per financial year.
Which tier am I eligible to claim from?
If you have completed at least four years of service before 1st April 2017 or no less than six after 1st April 2013, you can claim from the lower tier of funding. At least eight years of eligible service is required for you to claim from the higher tier.

Delegates cannot make ELC claims retrospectively.
Is there a deadline to making my claim?
