Financial Support for 16 - 18 Students

The 16-18 Bursary Fund has been set up to help learners aged 16-18 participate in further education. The fund has two elements, the 16-18 Bursary package (Discretionary Bursary) and the ICAP Bursary (Guaranteed Bursary).

16-18 Bursary Package

The 16-18 Bursary Package (Discretionary Bursary) has been carefully developed with one goal in mind... to help support our students across the areas that are most important. The package includes:

  • Term-Time Travel Pass (must live more than two miles from the College)
  • Subsidised Meals

Wondering if you’re eligible?

If your household income is below £30,000 your application will be considered. You’ll just need to show us some evidence that details your income for e.g. 2013-2014 Tax Credit Award Notice, benefit letter or P60.

Are you aged 16-18 and claiming Income Support or Disability Living Allowance and Employment Support Allowance? Are you in care or a care leaver?

You could be entitled to an ICAP Bursary (Guaranteed Bursary) worth £1,200. Any ICAP support agreed is unique to each student and is flexible to suit individual needs. For more details about ICAP Bursaries contact The Pod on 0151 353 4444 and ask to speak to a Retention & progression Co-ordinator.
