Career Development Loans 

Students applying for the following courses at Iron Mill College are able to apply for Professional and Career Development Loans:

Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (BACP Accredited)
Advanced Transactional Analysis Programme (ITA Accredited)

"Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work). The Skills Funding Agency (SFA) will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.

Because the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, they should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.

For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit

Our learning provider registration number is: 21023

PLEASE NOTE: The Professional and Career Development Loan scheme is closing. You must apply by 25 January 2019. This will not affect your existing loan.


Important Information:

  1. Iron Mill College issues your PCDL provider with the start and end dates of the taught element of your course onlyThis means that your PCDL provider will expect you to commence repayments shortly after the taught element of your course comes to an end (i.e. after the end of your second year).  Please consult with your PCDL provider for further details of precisely when these repayments will commence.

  2. Due to the nature of the frequency of payments made by the Professional and Career Development Loan companies, the amount borrowed must be based upon the Option 3 agreement for the Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling course, and the Option 2 agreement for the Advanced Transactional Analysis training.
