Bursary Payments


Hi, can I ask how other Providers pay there Bursary Payments to their Study Programme Learners please.  We currently pay our learners on a weekly basis and wondered if other Providers did the same?  We also have learners that use bus/trains, do any providers pay for Bus or Rail Cards upfront.  Thanks in advance.

HI Helen,

As a provider with multiple locations, we also have a standard process which is weekly BACS payments (we have operated this approach for many years).  We do also have one location who offer termly travel permits.  We purchase the permits in advance, the learners have an app on their phone which they use to take the journey. Should they leave the programme early or stop attending we have the option to stop the permit and request a refund from the travel operator.

Hope this helps
