Introduction to Advanced Learner Loan

Advanced Learner Loans are for people in England aged 19 and over. You don’t pay a penny back until you are earning more than £27,295 a year. There are no upfront costs, no credit checks and the loan does not affect state benefits. These loans are designed for adults that want to gain higher level qualifications. Loans are available for Green Labyrinth courses in Beauty, Personal Training, Sports Massage and more.

Loan eligibility does not depend on your income. Check to see if you’re eligible before you apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. You do not have to borrow the full cost of your course – you can pay for some of it yourself. You will be supported through the whole process by our team who will also be able to answer any questions you have.


Your journey to success starts here…

Our college values form the foundation of our educational approach, guiding our actions and decisions at every level. We wholeheartedly support these values throughout the institution.

Funds tuition

The loan is taken out to fund your tuition and pay for the resources needed during the course.

Paid back when you earn

The loan isn’t required to start being paid back until you are in work and earning over £27,295 a year.

Bursaries available

A bursary is available to pay for transport to and from the place you are learning. Extra childcare can also be paid for in addition to the loan. A bursary is for support and not repaid as part of the loan.


How Much You Will Get

It depends on the type of course and the course fees. The loan only covers fees, not living costs. The loan is paid directly to Green Labyrinth. You can take out up to 3 courses worth of loans. Many learners will want to complete: Personal Trainer, Sports Massage and Exercise referral to give them the practical knowledge to set themselves up as an independent Personal Trainer and Sports Professional.
