If you’ve had a career in the Armed Forces, you will already have a wealth of valuable skills that employers are looking for in their candidates. However, to progress your career outside of the military, you will need to certify these skills with industry-recognised qualifications, and Enhanced Learning Credits can help you to do this.
To be eligible to receive ELC payments, you must have accrued at least six years of military service. You can earn up to three credits, the value of which will depend on the length of your service. Your credits will cover 80% of your course fees, with the remaining 20% being funded by yourself.
Institute of Supply Chain Management is an approved Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) provider and a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant.
Our ELC provider number is 9651.

As well as unlimited first-class materials, there are self-assessments available online that show the results immediately to give you direction on what you’re doing well and what you might need to take another look at.
