This program assists individuals transitioning to civilian life by offering them the chance to acquire recognised qualifications, thereby preparing them for a successful new career.

The scheme promotes lifelong learning amongst members of the Armed Forces. Providing financial support in each of a maximum of three separate financial years, the scheme enables higher level learning of a nationally recognised qualification at Level 3 or above (or approved international equivalent) with an approved Learning Provider.

ISOQAR offer a number of approved courses, following a rigourous assessment, under the ELCAS scheme, which will give individuals the opportunity achieve a qualification with the aim of becoming a Lead Auditor in either, Quality, Health & Safety, Environmental, Information Security or Energy management systems. These courses are also approved by the CQI and IRCA.

How to claim ELCAS funding and how it works

Before you can claim ELCAS funding, you must meet certain eligibility requirements.

Individual scheme members need to have completed a minimum of six years of eligible service to qualify for the lower tier funding.

For those who completed four years of qualifying service before April 1, 2017, please refer to JSP 822 for further details. The lower tier offers up to £1,000 per claim installment, while the higher tier, available after eight years of service, provides up to £2,000 per claim installment. Only service accumulated since April 1, 2000, is counted as eligible for the ELC scheme.

To claim ELCAS funding, you must complete an online claim form and submit it to your Education Staff at least 25 working days before your course begins.

Once you receive your Claim Authorisation Note (CAN), present it to ISOQAR before the start of your course.
