What is the 24+ Advanced Learning Loan Bursary Fund?

The 24+ Advanced Learning Loans Bursary (ALLB) Fund is a scheme to help vulnerable learners who are being funded through a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan (ALL). Writtle College's ALLB Fund will be prioritised to support learning needs (including additional learning support, for example one to one support provided by Learning Support Assistants and Communicators for hearing impaired students). However, it could also provide help with the costs of travel, childcare, meals and other course related costs in cases of financial hardship. The fund will be distributed at the discretion of the College and is not an entitlement. For more information read the 24+ ALL Bursary Fund Statement.
