Free Loan Device
This scheme will provide you with a FREE digital loan device to assist you with your studies. The scheme will support your learning, equip you with the tools to succeed and help you to develop and showcase your digital skills.
There are many benefits to having access to digital devices as they are a great way for you to capture work and showcase skills.
Your device will have access to video surveys, polls and the ability to record group discussions and tutor feedback, all with the click of a button.
New built in AI features will also help you to improve your spelling, grammar and punctuation, create dynamic presentations and even turn speech-to-text.
Loan laptops are for all 16-19-year-old students on a Level 1, 2 or 3 study programme, all HE students on Level 4 and 5 programmes (excluding Professional Quals AAT and NEBOSH) and Access to HE students (excluding distance learning).
They will be distributed at enrolment or for HE students at your first lesson.
The device will be kept by you at all times and can be used by you at college or at home at any time throughout your course.
From September 2022, students who complete the laptop scheme for 2 years will get to keep the device! We will transfer the device ownership from the College to the student.
Any student that leaves within 2 years needs to return the device to Helpcentre.
