Students studying at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology could be up to £600 better off a year when studying a full-time course.
The College has launched a ‘Cash for Success’ initiative where full-time students aged between 16-18 years-old are rewarded for their success.
Students achieving 100 percent attendance, handing in all work on time and having a good behaviour record will receive a £50 reward in each of the three terms in the college year.
As part of the scheme, the College will also provide support for success, whereby full-time students aged 16-18 years-old with an annual family income of less than £21,000 can be eligible for up to £450 financial support.
The initiative will start afresh each term, so if a student fails to meet the criteria during one term, they will still be eligible to achieve the £50 reward for the following one if their performance improves.
Gill Alton, Principal and Chief Executive of Rotherham College of Arts and Technology said: “Financial barriers shouldn’t get in the way of learning and progression into further training and work, and this scheme should help remove some barriers for young people in Rotherham.”
The offer is initially available only during the academic year 2012–2013.
