Additional Types of Financial Support

We also have several additional types of financial support available, including the Prince's Trust Development Awards, and Professional and Career Development Loans.

Prince’s Trust Development Awards

Development Awards are cash awards to help young people access education, training and employment. Young people can also receive help with action planning and on-going support and monitoring.

The awards are in place to help fund additional costs such as;

  • Tools, equipment or transport for a job
  • Course fees
  • Professional licence fees
  • Interview Clothes
  • Childcare costs

Professional and Career Development Loans

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.

These loans can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use these loans to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries but these loans should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.
