Financial Help and Career Development Loans

Career Development Loans for Hypnotherapy Training

The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is a registered UK Learning Provider and we are listed in the Department for Education & Skills’ UK Register of Learning Providers (UKPRN 10042163).  Therefore students may qualify for a Professional and Career Development Loan – a commercial bank loan designed to help learners pay for learning that leads to work.

Professional and Career Development Loans are commercial bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.  You can borrow from £300 and up to £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 Government pays the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. You then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loans product.  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.

As the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, you should make sure you have investigated all the funding options that may be open to you to ensure you take an informed decision about whether the Loan is right for you.

For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, visit or or contact the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900.

Financial Help and Career Development Loans — 1 Comment

  1. Dear Mark
    I am writing because I am passionate about retraining as a hypnotherapist having experienced the benefits of hypnotherapy myself.I have researched the different training options available to me and I can see how focused and considered your training is.
    I thought there was nothing to loose with sharing my circumstance with you- basically I do not have the funds to attend your diploma course – with two small children and my husband working in the third sector and me part time our income does not allow for this. So I thought I’d take a long shot and ask if there is anything I can do (volunteering- pledging my support with courses in the future) to experience the training at a reduced cost? I have trained as a trainer and am a qualified teacher, having worked for a number of childrens’ charities and education charities in programme management roles. I am a strong people person and have I think the qualities and commitment to be a successful therapist. Ultimately I’d especially like to develop skills to support young people with stress and self esteem issues.
    Huge thanks for your reply and I hope you don’t mind me asking. I appreciate you are a business. But I also know that nothing happens without being bold and asking- so I thought I would.
    Very many thanks indeed for reading this
    Emma Coffey
