If your employer has agreed to pay for your course fees they must supply either a letter on Company headed paper or a Purchase Order number (PO) with your name, course and the amount they are paying towards your course fees. If your employer operates a PO system then a PO must be supplied. This can be accepted by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
On receipt of the letter or PO from your employer, an invoice will be issued in due course. If you bring a cheque from your employer it should be made payable to Edinburgh College with your student name, ID number (for returning students) or application number and date of birth written on the back of the cheque.

You must also have an income of £22,000 a year or less, or be on benefits to be eligible to get up to £200 towards the costs of learning or training with an Individual Learning Account from Skills Development Scotland.
Individual Learning Accounts are available if you are interested in learning something new or brushing up your skills.
