Up to and including the 31st March 2019, an application was received once a customer completed (i) their registration stating their personal details and that they considered themselves eligible to apply to the Transition Training Fund, and (ii) a training proposal that will help them towards alternative employment. Once completed, a SDS Adviser will contact the customer to provider guidance on how to complete and provide evidence to support their claim to the Transition Training Fund. The number of applications will still increase beyond the 31st March due to processing of applications received prior to the 31st March.
Decisions made include applications where the customer is approved for funding for training and also where the customer's application is unsuccessful. Where a customer's application is unsuccessful a customer may re-apply to the Transition Training Fund - subject to the approaching closure of the fund as described in any TTF website notices and in the most recent TTF Terms and Conditions.
Unsuccessful applications can be the result of the customer withdrawing their application to reconsider their training proposal, the customer not maintaining contact with an SDS adviser for more than 6 weeks, or where a customer cannot evidence their eligibility. In all cases, an SDS adviser will support the customer as far as possible with their application to the Transition Training Fund.
Approved applications are successful and result in the customer receiving funding for their training proposal. When an application is approved an SDS adviser accepts the evidence of personal eligibility submitted by the customer and agrees that the training proposal submitted enhances the likelihood of the customer gaining employment. Before an application is approved a customer must also confirm they agree to the awarded funding for the approved training.
