Studying as an adult can give you the qualifications you need to progress towards a fulfilling career – but you may find it difficult to pay the tuition fees. An Advanced Learner Loan is a great way of getting help with the cost of studying if you are 19 or over, and want to study on a course at level 3 to level 6 at Lewisham Southwark College.

You can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover all or part of your tuition fees for a range of courses including Access to Higher Education Diplomas, BTEC and other Diplomas and Certificates, and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs).

The loan is not means-tested and does not require a credit check – and you will only start paying it back once your income is more than £21,000 per annum. In fact, your loan could be written off  altogether if you progress to higher education from an Access course and achieve your degree, regardless of how much you go on to earn.

The minimum loan is £300, while the maximum amount will depend on the type of course you’re studying and the course fees. You don’t have to borrow the full tuition fees: you may choose to pay some of it yourself.

If you’re interested in applying for an Advanced Learner Loan, visit www.gov.uk/advanced-learner-loan for full details and to check your eligibility. To apply you will need to collect a ‘Learning and Funding Information Letter’ from the College before applying online.

Our floristry students – under the guidance of course leader Louise Roffey – are providing a five star service to brides and grooms on their wedding days to rival London’s top florists.

The team recently provided stunning table and pedestal arrangements, along with all the bouquets and buttonholes, at a beautiful wedding at the Devonport House Hotel in Greenwich, making a huge impression on the family and guests. The groom’s mother, who organised the wedding, said afterwards, “What you created was breath taking – exceeding expectation doesn’t even come close. It was not only the arrangements themselves, it was your attention to detail. I just don’t know how you did it!”

Guided by the couple’s choice of colour scheme, Louise and her team of students came up with an original design for the arrangements – featuring deep red roses and seasonal green foliage – which looked dramatic against a white backdrop.



Louise had worked closely with the groom’s mother for the months leading up to the big day, providing an impeccable service despite the fact that she was also busy organising her own wedding at the time!

The College has excellent links with local venues such as the Devonport House Hotel, which enables floristry students to get real experience of creating arrangements for clients. During September our students will be providing flowers for another wedding in Clapham, while their work is also being showcased at the Hotels Wedding Fair.
