Learner Application Form


Please note! An * next to a field, denotes a mandatory field.

Welcome to your TSN application form.

Many of our courses are provided without charge to learners. They are funded by the UK Government’s Adult Education Budget (AEB) via the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), and in some cases may match funding provided by the European Social Fund (ESF). As a condition of claiming this government funding, we are required to gather certain data to carry out certain identity / eligibility checks for our learners.

Thanks again from the TSN team.

If the form is inactive or without input for 20 minutes, the session will expire and your progress will not be saved.
Please ensure that you have a scanned copy/image of your ID to hand, as you will be asked to upload this at the end of the application form.

NB: If your name on your ID is in a different name and/or surname to the one on your application, we will need further evidence to support this. I.e. A copy of your marriage certificate, deed poll.

Please note: to be eligible for funding you must tick to confirm you meet the following criteria;
  • I currently live in England or Scotland
  • I have lived in the European Union for the last 3 years
  • I was aged 19 or over on 31st August 2020
  • I have not studied the course I am applying for before
  • I am not currently enrolled on any other government funded education programme, either with The Skills Network or any another provider

If you are aged 19-23 years old then you are subject to additional eligibility criteria related to your prior educational attainment


  • The information you have provided will confirm your eligibility to be funded – either fully or in part – by the ESFA. Where your course is fully funded you will be exempted from all fees. Where your course is not fully funded, The Skills Network will waive all course fees unless your course is not completed. In that case we reserve the right to charge a £100 fee to cover lost funding.
