Financial Assistance with Childcare for South Downs College Students

Childcare Support for young learners
(Aged under 20)

If you are a young parent studying at South Downs College (under 20 when your course starts) and you want to start or continue in learning, you could be eligible for help with your childcare costs through the Government ‘Care to Learn’ scheme.

The subject or course you take is up to you and you can study on a part-time or full-time basis.

While you are learning you could be helping to build a better future for you and your family by gaining new skills and qualifications. You will also be meeting new people and making new friends which may give you greater confidence and independence.

Care to Learn is designed to give you the help and support you need to enjoy studying without added worries. Please see the website for more information and how to apply
www.direct.gov.uk/caretolearn

Childcare Support
(Aged 20 and Over)

If you are a student at South Downs College (aged 20 or over when your course starts) you may be entitled to receive help with your childcare costs.

Your childcare costs will be subsidised if you are enrolled on a Skills for Life course or if you are a student in receipt of or are an unwaged dependant of someone who is in receipt of an income based benefit.

South Downs College may be able to assist greatly with the cost of childcare fees - even if you do not fit the criteria we may still be able to help.

For more information please telephone Rachel Harden on 023 9279 4606 or visit the Student Finance & Travel Desk (based on the ground floor, next to Customer Services & Reception). Application forms for Financial Assistance with Childcare will be available from the end of August 2015.
