I recently submitted an ELC claim for a resettlement course and while in with the retired Maj. Resettlement officer,he noticed that I was part way into a history degree with the OU. He asked if I'd heard of the FE scheme whereby the government funds your tuition fees. He'd found out the day before that individuals who had already accrued some credits towards a degree could cut into the scheme provided they had less than 120 credits. This was in order to allow chaps who'd accrued credits through trade courses (such as REME Artificers) to take advantage of the scheme in order to top up to a full degree. When the RO initially asked me, I replied that I'd just finished my second module therefore I wouldn't be able to use that scheme. It wasn't until a couple of days later that I realised that I hadn't yet received my results for the second module exam and therefore I still only had 60 credits. I phoned the RO officer and he told me that he'd make enquiries but his gut feeling was in fact, due to me having an open ELC claim (for the resettlement course) open, I would not be able to use the FE scheme. He has yet to confirm this and I haven't been able to reach him but time is running out as I will receive my results at the end of the month. Do any ELCAS gurus out there reckon they might have a better insight to this?
