What is a Career Development Loan?
A Career Development Loan (CDL) is a deferred repayment bank loan (available to UK residents only) to help you pay for vocational education or training.
CDLs are available through a partnership arrangement between the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) and three major banks - Barclays, The Co-operative and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
What can you borrow?
You can apply to borrow between £300 and £8,000 to pay for up to two years of training (or up to 3 years if the course includes work experience). The loan can cover:
80% of your course fees
100% of your course fees if you have been out of work for three months or more. The definition of out of work is people who are unemployed (registered or unregistered), returners to the labour market and students living expenses if your course is full time other related expenses - including books, childcare, travel expenses and any costs associated with disability
