ELCAS and IRTC Funding

ELCAS and IRTC Funding



For those who leave the armed forces, figuring out what to do next can be daunting. This is why the an initiative to promote lifelong learning is offered to those who qualify; Enhanced Learning Credits (ELCAS).

Those who receive ELCAS funding are able to put their credits towards a number of approved course to encourage new career paths and further learning. We are proud to say that Keytek® offer an ELCAS approved locksmithing course at our purpose built locksmith academy. You are able to put your ELCAS credits towards our Level 3 Diploma course. This is a new qualification to the industry and Keytek is one of the first locksmith training providers to offer this course.

Our approved ELCAS Locksmith course here at the Keytek® Locksmith Training Academy is the Highfield Level 3 Diploma for Commercial Locksmiths and Property Security.

Our ELCAS provider number is 4682.

You might need some support when it comes to the claim procedure for your ELCAS credits. You can access this support through ELCAS itself or through your learning/resettlement advisor. Or if you prefer you can contact our academy team, who have had years of experience when it comes to the ELCAS process and are more than happy to give advice.

For full details of how to claim go to the ELCAS website: www.enhancedlearningcredits.com.



As well as ELCAS credits, you may also receive IRTC (Individual Resettlement Training Costs) which can reimburse some of the cost of the course for you – making your contribution even smaller. It’s a great way to set yourself up in a new career, without having to spend lots of your own money.
