Aborist Training for Service Leavers

These training packages are designed to equip service leavers with the necessary skills and training to start a career as an Arborist or Tree Surgeon. The Advanced Groundsperson training package has been developed for those wanting to start a career in forestry or arboriculture.

The MOD's Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) is an initiative to promote lifelong learning amongst members of the Armed Forces. The ELC scheme provides financial support in the form of a single payment in each of a maximum of three separate financial years.

ELC funding is only available for higher level learning that results in a nationally recognised qualification at Level three or above on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

TKF Training is an Approved Provider to ELCAS and have developed three course ‘packages’ which are approved for ELCAS funding for service Leavers who have ELC entitlement.
