Learners aged 16 to 18 (at the start of the academic year) are eligible for a
guaranteed bursary of £1200 a year if they are:
• Young people in care
• Care leavers

• On Income Support or Universal Credit because they are financially supporting themselves or financially supporting themselves and someone who is dependent on them and living with them such as child or partner
• Disabled young people in receipt of Personal Independence Payments and Employment and Support Allowance or Universal Credit
The student bursary is intended to help learners at PM Training overcome financial obstacles.
Awards from the bursary will be used towards essential course-related costs such as travel, meals, equipment, uniform/clothing, trips and other costs associated with learning. Discretionary awards will be subject to sufficient funds being available.
These are available for learners aged 16-18 (at the start of the academic year) who face genuine financial barriers to staying on in education and training to help with costs such as transport to PM Training, work placements and interviews, meals, field trips, workwear,
uniforms and equipment.
