2. Deko Finance (Payment Plan)
Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 19.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.
A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.
If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.
The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.
You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.
