We understand that not everyone always has the cash needed, to pay for their course upfront, at the time when they want to start their course. So we offer different ways to pay to help you spread the cost over a longer period.
In total we have 3 ways in which you can pay for your course, choose the payment method that suits you best:
- Payment in Full

Would a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan make any difference to my course?
Yes, when you study using this kind of funding, "Dimensions Training Solutions" deliver your course and it does offer considerably more than the same one without the 19+ funding loan.
Enhanced course content
Six Employability and Independent Learning Skills (EILS) modules are embedded in the content of your course: Maths, English, Digital Life Skills, Confidence, Resilience and Meeting Deadlines.
You can choose to study a further four: Workplace Ready, Initiative, Teamwork and Problem Solving. These are all designed to boost your personal skill level and help your career progression.
Additional personal support
A Student Support Officer (SSO) will be assigned to you, so you have a single point of contact throughout your course to support you with any admin issues.
Dimensions Training Solutions regularly update the SFA with details of study hours, and evidence of learning, in order to responsibly account for your course funding.
You will have an Individual Learning Plan with a set "finish date" and your SSO is there to encourage and help you stay on course. This is in addition to your Assessor, who assesses your work and provides personal constructive feedback.
