Vocational training and funding
Next year, theres a course I would like to do if I am well enough. But funding seems to be a huge problem. Its a level 4 course and vocational, so even if I could get student funding I can't because its vocational (a level 4 C&G course). I doubt I would be able to get a career development loan because I'm not sure how I'd pay it back straight away. Its possible but very unlikely that I could find an employer who would take me on and pay for the training. I'm also looking at this because this is the follow-on from the course I'm currently taking, and most of the girls on it won't be 18 when they finish the current course so they haven't many options for funding either.
