The Individual Resettlement Training Costs (IRTC) grant¬†
The IRTC grant is available to Service leavers with six or more years‚Äô service and all Medical Discharges. It is a contribution to training costs and can be used internally at the Resettlement Training Centre (RTC), Aldershot or at a Regional Resettlement Centre (RRC) for vocational training courses. It can also be used externally for training with CTP Preferred Suppliers.IRTC is available for tuition fees up to a maximum of ¬£534. ¬†A range of courses at the RTC Aldershot is delivered within the MOD contract (called¬†Contract Funded training). The MOD pre-pay these courses and only ‚Äėcost‚Äô the Service leaver time and a portion of the ¬†¬£534 allowance. No money changes hands for the training but days and funding are deducted from the GRT allocation at a rate of ¬£26.70 per day. The ¬£534 gives access to up to 20 days of CF training. Any exam or registration fees are extra and payable by the students but other allowances may be available to help with those.The CTP also offers a range of courses that are not within the MOD contract known as¬†Non-Contract Funded¬†courses and you can use your IRTC grant or ELC to pay for these (see below for further information on ELC funding).
