At Stonebridge Careers Training, we’re committed to making education affordable for everyone. We offer a choice of funding methods, enabling you to select a payment plan that works for you.
Cover the cost of your course upfront and access our very latest discounts. Students that pay in full can take advantage of promotions and price changes to make incredible savings. Start your qualification straightaway and work through your study programme at your own pace, with no further fees.
If paying for your course instantly isn’t convenient, you can spread the cost over 12 months or less. Our payment plans come with interest at 0% APR, ensuring that you can entirely fund your studies in manageable instalments. To begin the process, you’ll put down a small deposit, which will be taken off the total cost of your course. Complete our payment registration form and get started on your qualification. Once your final instalment is made, you’ll receive a previously agreed cashback payment from our team.
Secure a loan that will spread the cost of your course over 3 years. Working in partnership with Deko, Stonebridge Careers Training can offer an adaptable payment plan. To progress with your loan application, you’ll need to pass a credit check and pay a 5% deposit.

On August 1st 2016, the government introduced 19+ advanced learner loans. These loans allow those who are aged 19 or over to go back into education.
You will start paying back your loan from the April following the completion of your course. The monthly repayments are based on your annual salary and not the amount that was loaned and you won’t need to pay anything until your salary exceeds £21,000 per annum. If for any reason your salary falls below this level, then repayments will be suspended until you earn this amount again. If you want to pay back a higher amount each month and clear your loan faster, this is also an option.
Once your annual income exceeds £21,000 then the repayment amount will be 9% of any income you earn over £21,000.
Any outstanding Advanced Learner Loan will usually be written off if it hasn’t been paid back after 30 years.
If you receive a disability related benefit or are deemed permanently unfit for work, it will also be cancelled.
Your loan, or any balance outstanding, will be completely wiped if you go on to graduate from university and the course is eligible for funding by Student Finance England. This means that you won’t have to repay the loan if you are successful in completing your degree.
I decided to complete my Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructing (QCF) Diploma Level 3 with learndirect Careers because I wanted a course that was both affordable and convenient. I soon discovered that the 19+ Advanced Learner Loan scheme, backed by the Government, was exactly what I was looking for. I could finally enrol on a course without having to worry about the cost.Danny McDermott
I chose to study with learndirect Careers because due to the nature of my previous job (working shifts within the care industry), I couldn’t commit to attending classes regularly at a traditional college. I still wanted to gain my Health and Social Care (Adults) Diploma QCF Level 3 and so learndirect Careers’s distance learning course was the perfect solution.Dawn Webb
I knew that I wanted to return to education, but I needed to find a college that offered distance learning qualifications. I had to fit studying around my family life and work commitments. I chose learndirect Careers because my course could be completed entirely online, without having to attend any timetabled sessions. My initial enquiry was responded to very quickly by learndirect Careers and all the staff that I have dealt with have been extremely friendly.Joy Bailey
I chose distance learning because I am a stay-at-home mum and it was the only way I could study, without having to pay for childcare. I decided to study a learndirect Careers course because unlike many similar courses, it could be completed remotely. The Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructing (QCF) Diploma Level 3 could also be funded by a Government loan, reducing the cost of returning to education.Rosie Gibbs
I enjoyed the course a lot and all the modules were informative. It has made me fall in love with hospitality even more now that I have the knowledge that I need. I’m looking forward to starting a job in the industry.Celeste Young
The course was very interesting and explained everything clearly using the latest materials. I am a hotelier, but several of the topics were new for me, and I enjoyed learning them with learndirect.Regulthafus Andrikus
