Small Business Practice Incentive Contribution for Education (SPICE)
SPICE (Small Practice Incentive Contribution for Education) aims to help small practices train CA students.
Practices with five partners or less are eligible, and can apply for a reduction of £1,000 per student in the published course fee for all students starting at either Test of Competence or Test of Professional Skills, through the block release scheme.
SPICE application form
This will be applied to those students starting TPS in 2016 or TC from September 2016, who have not been eligible for a SPICE grant previously.
Applications can be made once only, either at TC or TPS Level, and only for students who start their training in the intake year of 2016/17. Students from prior intake years are not eligible for the SPICE grant.
