Can some of the great and good advise on entitlement to ELC for those who have left the Service. I have an opportunity to take up a Distance Learning course but am unsure if I am still entitled to any help from HM Forces under the ELC scheme. I served 22 years and left in 2004. I have not requested financial assistance from the Educators before and was just wondering if there might be any available to me now. I seem to recall that ELC was available up to 10 years after leaving (wishful thinking I know) but maybe someone out there could offer up some pearls. Are there any other avenues to obtain funding other than ELC? Grateful for any advice.
