CONSTRUCTION

MARY’S STORY “My career aim is to work in the construction industry, specialising in plastering, tiling and carpentry. In addition to my course, I was also able to gain extra qualifications such as a CSCS card, relevant training and a Power Access License to use special machinery. I’ve had great work experience – we built pop-up Brixton. This involved digging,

jack hammers, cutting the wood, cleaning the site and using various equipment and machinery. The teachers are very professional and you leave being a better person. Lambeth College is outstanding.” Mary Miller McCall L3 City and Guilds Diploma in Painting and Decorating

Help with Fees and Finance Making it possible for you to study

Talk to our Customer Services Team on 020 7501 5000 for more information about student finance, loans and bursaries for 2017 / 18. Money may be available to some home students to help with the cost of childcare. We can advise learners on charities and other organisations that may give you financial help. If your fees are being paid for by your employer or another organisation you will need to provide a letter from them stating that they will pay. The College will then invoice them. If you are self-employed you will need to provide evidence from HMRC to verify your status. Fee refunds The College will refund fees for the following reasons: • Your course has been cancelled • We have changed dates and times and you are no longer able to attend • There has been a mistake in the actual fee charge • You are an international student and have had your visa application refused* • Illness prevents your attendance but this must be supported by medical evidence from a doctor/hospital* *Any refund approved is subject to a levy of 5% administration charge or £15 whichever is the greater plus a charge for any lessons attended.

Aged 19 or over and thinking about a course at Lambeth College? Advanced Learner Loans help you to pay the tuition fees. Most learners aged 19 and over, studying at level 3 and above, will qualify for these loans from the UK Government. It is easy to apply, your household income is not taken into account and there is no credit check. You will not have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 a year.

Please note: changes may be made to our course offer or fee structure in the event of changes in eligibility or funding rules. FAQs – for more detailed questions and answers, please visit the Lambeth College website. Advice to the unemployed Full time courses range across a number of hours. A full time programme can have as few as 12 hours of timetabled sessions and a maximum of 16 hours of timetabled sessions. Timetables and course hours may change before the start of the course due to changes in government funding and/or policies. Please check the up-to-date details at the time of your enrolment. Once you enrol, the College issues learners with a letter which outlines the number of hours you are timetabled to study and the courses you are enrolled on. You are able to show this letter to other organisations who may need to know how many hours you are studying. Who administers the loan? Advanced Learner Loans are administered by Student Finance England (SFE). Student Finance England is a Student Loans Company service, providing financial support to students on behalf of the UK Government.

Help with Fees and Finance Making it possible for you to study

What information do I need to provide when applying for a loan? You’ll need to provide details of the course you wish to study, the tuition fee you’re being charged; and the amount of loan you wish to take out. In addition, you’ll be required to provide your personal details (name, address, etc) and evidence to confirm your identity. For UK passport holders this will just be your valid UK passport details (not a physical passport). If you’re a UK national but don’t hold a passport you’ll be asked to provide another form of evidence such as a UK birth certificate, which will be returned to you. If I’m a European Union (EU) learner would I be eligible for a loan? If you meet the residency criteria you’ll be eligible to apply for a loan. If you’re not a UK national you’ll need to provide physical identity evidence, as well as evidence that you’re a permanent resident inside the UK.

You’ll also need to provide a valid National Insurance number in order for the loan to be paid to the college or training organisation on your behalf. Can I apply for a loan after my course has started? Yes. It’s possible to apply for a loan at any time during your course, but not after you’ve completed it. If you wish to apply for a loan during your course, you’ll need to agree this with Lambeth College. How long will it take me to hear the outcome of a loan application? Applications submitted online that don’t require any further supporting evidence (because you’ve provided your valid UK passport details) should be processed within 4-5 days. All other applications should be processed within 2-4 weeks. The exact timing will depend on you providing correct application data and the relevant original identity evidence at the time of application.


Lambeth College – The Careers College

If my course lasts for more than one year do I need to reapply each year? No. Your loan application will last for the duration of the course, even when that course lasts for more than one year. What happens if I change my mind before I start my course? If you decide, before the start of your course, you no longer want to undertake your course or you don’t want to take out a loan for the course then you can simply contact Student Finance England who will be able to cancel your loan application, and you won’t have any loan to repay. What happens if I change my mind once I’ve started my course? No loan payments will be made to your college or training organisation on your behalf until you’ve attended the course for at least 2 weeks. If you leave the course after more than 2 weeks then you’ll be liable to repay the loan payments made on your behalf, which will be based on the length of time you attended the course. How much loan can I take out? There’s a maximum amount of loan available to you based on the type of qualification that you’re doing and your college or training organisation will be able to advise you of this amount. The fee charged by the college or training organisations may be less than the maximum loan amount available; therefore you’d only need to take out a loan to cover the fee being charged. You can take out a loan for the maximum amount to cover your tuition fee or you can pay all or part of the tuition fee yourself. Will I have to repay the full loan amount if I leave part way through the course? No. Your loan will be paid to Lambeth College in line with your attendance on the course. When you stop attending, payments will stop and you’ll only be liable to repay the amount (including any interest accrued on that amount) that’s already been paid to Lambeth College.

Will I be able to get a loan if I’ve already achieved a similar qualification i.e. I already have A levels? Yes. Previous qualifications you’ve achieved won’t affect your ability to take out one of these. How many loans can I take out? You can apply for up to 4 loans and you can get more than one at the same time. You can apply for another loan to take the same level of a course, e.g. the same level qualification in History if you’ve already had a loan for the same level in maths. You can only apply once for an Access to Higher Education course. How will I pay back the loan? Repayments will be automatically deducted from your earnings through the tax system once you’ve left the course and your income is more than £21,000 a year. When will repayments start? Repayments will start from the April after you finish your course (i.e. if your course finishes in July 2018, your repayments will start from April 2019) and there is no need to repay until then. If I move to another country following my course and my income is more than £21,000 do I still have to repay the loan? Yes. If you go abroad we’ll make arrangements with you to collect repayments while you are outside of the UK tax system. However, if you move abroad the repayment thresholds will vary according to price level indices for that country. You will be required to pay a fixed instalment to be calculated by the Student Loans Company. How much interest will I be charged on the loan? Interest will be charged at the Retail Price Index (RPI) +3 per cent during the period of study, and up until the April after you leave the course.
