    Hi,

    Are Self-Employed people able to access funding under AEB?

    Thanks
    Anna

    I’ve been asked the same question today – but in relation to the new AEB low wage criteria being applied next year.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Hi,
    Anna:
    Yes, as normal eligibility for funding is dependant on residency, age of learner and prior qualifications and Provision/qualification to be undertaken and the Employment status of the learner is not a factor.
    Kate:
    The definition for Employed in the funding rules is: An individual who has a contract of employment. This does not include self-employed individuals.
    As it is a requirement for ‘Learners in receipt of low wage’ to be employed this would exclude those who are self-employed.
