Student travel grants
ICAS introduced travel grants to help firms remote from Training Centres meet the additional cost of training.
Eligibility is based on the distance from a firm's place of business (the student's usual place of work) to the closest ICAS training centre offering block release classes.
For classes located in a city where the training centre is usually the hotel or conference centre, the distance should be treated as the firm's place of business to the train station in the city concerned.
Travel grants fall into two categories:
- £20 per day for students travelling more than 40 miles to block release classes at TC and TPS only; and
- £40 per day for students travelling more than 70 miles and are required to stay overnight to attend block release classes at TC and TPS level.
This applies to all:
- TC block release classes starting in September 2019.
- TPS block release classes starting February 2019 (FR/Tax) and September 2019 (AF/ABS).
