Many of our students dream of taking their personal training career to the next level but don’t have the money to pay upfront on the qualifications to get them there. So who are we to hold you back?
We have a selection of courses which qualify for advanced learning loans to help you study for that fitness career, without worrying about the finances.
You can apply for a Learning Loan to help you pay the tuition fees on any of the courses below…
- Exercise Referral
- Sports Massage
- Lower Back Pain Specialist
- Obesity and Diabetes Specialist
- Specialist Practitioner
Planning on studying for more than one? That’s fine too. You can make up to four applications for different courses, so you needn’t worry about finances whilst focusing on your future!
The loan repayment will be based on your income, once you start earning £25,000 per year (recently increased from £21,000 per year giving you extra breathing space to get your finances in check.) It’s easy to apply, your household income is not taken into account and there is no credit check.
Loans are available for a limited time only, so whilst they’re still currently available, they won’t be around for long!
Here’s How It Works…
You pay back your loan (plus interest) when you finish your course and are earning more than £25,000 a year from your new personal training career.
Your annual repayment will be 9% of any income you earn over £25,000.
E.g Your monthly repayments would be £15 a month if you earn £27,000 a year or £37 a month if you earned £30,000 a year. Less than your phone bill or those essential morning coffees!
If your income drops or rises, for example, if you receive a nice bonus in your paycheck, your repayment amount will automatically change to reflect this. You can make voluntary payments at any time to pay off your loan more quickly.
If you are self-employed you will be responsible for making student loan repayments as part of your annual self-assessment tax return.
If you are employed you don’t need to do anything. Your employer will take your repayments directly of your salary as they do with Tax and National Insurance Contributions.
If you stop working, your repayments will stop and only start again when your income is more than £25,000 per year.
Any loan remaining 30 years after you are due to start making repayments will be wiped.
