    Help for training as Mortician 9th Apr 18 at 12:02 PM
    My grand daughter has been training as a Mortician for three years or so. In that time her parents have had to pay for each modular course, 7,000.00 and above. She does not qualify for a student loan (why - no idea) Is there anywhere that may be able to help towards these costs?

    It may be too late now, but an apprenticeship would be the obvious answer.

    How old is she? If over 24 then maybe an advanced learner loan?

    Has she looked into getting work with an Undertaker Funeral Service provider like Co-op? I think you can start in reception/sales, and work your way up, with the Co-op paying for the training.
