LGV Trainers now an approved Learning Provider for Professional and Career Development Loans

LGV Trainers  is now an approved and registered PCDL training provider for Professional and Career Development Loans.

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans for courses and training that help boost your career or help get you into work with a new qualification.

Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate and the government pays interest while you’re studying.

You can apply for the loan 2 months before your course starts to give the bank enough time to process your application.

Check with your benefits office before taking out a PCDL as it can affect any benefits you’re entitled to.
