Enhanced Learning Credit (ELC) Scheme

The ELC scheme is designed for members of the Armed Forces and provides financial support for higher-level training courses. Frontier Risks Group is an ELCAS Approved Training Provider and therefore we are able to support individuals looking to access financial support under the scheme.

Whilst Frontier Risks Group is an ELCAS Approved Training Provider, not all of our courses can be supported by the scheme. ELC funding is currently available on the following options;

What is the Enhanced Learning Credit (ELC) Scheme?

  1. Register to become a Scheme Member. You must accrue a sufficient amount of service before you can submit a claim. See ELCAS for further details.
  2. Submit an enquiry to Frontier Risks Group for one of the above courses and receive the details needed for your claim form.
  3. Complete an ELC claim form and submit to ELCAS

    You must gain approval from an authorised Education Staff if you are in service or your Single Service Representative if you are out of service. For further details regarding claiming please read the out of service, ex-service personnel guidance.

  4. ELCAS will then check your eligibility for funding and, if approved, will send you a Claim Authorisation Note (CAN)
  5. ​Once you have received your CAN, forward to Frontier Risks Group who can then enrol you onto the course and require your student contribution (20%). YOU MUST submit your CAN to Frontier Risks Group to successfully enrol on the course.
  6. Finally, upon completion of the programme, you must complete a Course Evaluation Form via the ELCAS website.


    To claim Enhanced Learning Credits funding you are required to complete the required length of eligible service. This must be completed prior to applying to attend any course of study.

    Once eligible to claim you may submit a claim up to five years (if you left on/after 1st April 2016) or up to ten years (if you left before 1st April 2016) after you leave the service. Please read JSP 822 for the expiration date of your claims particularly in respect of those service leavers who were medically discharged.

    You can only make one claim per financial year (1st April to 31st March), however if you have served between 6 and 8 years you may be eligible to aggregate all three claims together subject to meeting the qualifying criteria outlined in JSP 822. If you are claiming in the last year of scheme eligibility, study must commence before scheme expiry date.

    Claimants are required to pay a minimum of 20% of the course fee for each ELC claim and the MOD will fund the remainder up to the claimant’s tier limit.

    Retrospective ELC claims are not permitted, claim forms must be received by ELCAS at least 25 clear working days prior to the course start date/registration date. You must ensure that you have enough time to receive the Claim Authorisation Note (CAN) to present to your chosen ELCAS Approved Training Provider before the course starts.

    It is important that you do not set up a loan/credit agreement for the full amount under any circumstances.

    Do not pay a deposit before you receive your Claim Authorisation Note (CAN).

      Procedure for Claimants no longer in service

      Please note that the following information must be submitted with your claim by either post/electronic (Member’s Area) to your Single Service Representative (address details below) a minimum of 25 working days prior to your course start date/registration date:

      Food and Accommodation

      In accordance with ELCAS rules and learning provider obligations, food and accommodation is not included in the above costs.

      Private accommodation is available on site and can be invoiced separately. It will cost you £1320 (inc VAT) for 12 nights en-suite accommodation and includes 3 meals a day, refreshments throughout and full use of the leisure facilities. If you are serving, this cost can be claimed back through JPA. If you are a service leaver, please ask your resettlement officer about using your allowances to support this cost.

      What our ELCAS students say

      In summary, the course was excellent. It delivered an outstanding training package well beyond my expectations. The instructors, tutors, speakers and professors were of the highest quality. Their respective briefs were very professional and informative.I am now looking forward to continuing study with them as part of a level 6 course & MSc academic program thereafter. I will definitely be recommending this course to my friends and colleagues.


      Special Boat Service

      The learning provider provided an exemplary course. The course content, course delivery and course support were all excellent. The atmosphere created by the learning provider was one which encouraged participation and thought. The course exceeded all my expectations and I feel should be considered the gold standard for the provision of resettlement training. It was evident Frontier Risk Group are committed to providing training the the very highest standard.

      Flight Lieutenant


      Frontier Risks are an extremely effective LP for military personnel, as they have a wealth of military experience which they use to good effect. Their use of visiting lecturers to deliver content ensures the 12 days are constantly varied, stimulating and relevant to current business practices. The SRMC course has proved invaluable in identifying how my current military intelligence and security skills can map across into the private sector, setting me up well for life outside the Army.
