Pride in Association

For Symposium IT, being associated with ELCAS is not just about business; it’s about pride. We take immense pride in being a part of an elite group dedicated to serving those who’ve selflessly served us. The positive ripples we create in the lives of our service members, during and post their service, stand as a testament to our unwavering commitment and excellence. 

ELCAS Programme - What is ELCAS?​

The Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) is an initiative by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) designed to promote lifelong learning among members of the armed forces. This commendable scheme enables service personnel to attain financial backing, aiding them in pursuing higher education and training courses. This ensures that they are well-equipped and prepared for civilian life post their dedicated service in the military.

How does ELCAS Work?

Service members in the UK Armed Forces are constantly urged to amplify their personal and professional qualifications. Not just during their service, but also once they transition out of it. After dedicated service, they become eligible to receive funding which can be used across a multitude of learning programs, spanning academic qualifications, vocational training, and other skill-enhancing courses.
