APPRENTICE DISCOUNTS

Life as an Apprenticeship Connect learner comes with many benefits. Once you are enrolled onto one of our training courses you will be eligible for a variety of discounts including reduced travel rates, council tax relief and retail and entertainment discounts. Some of the discounts available to our learners include:

Apprentice Oyster photocard (18+)+

With an Apprentice Oyster photocard you can save 30% off adult-rate Travelcards and Bus & Tram Pass season tickets.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be aged 18+
  • Live in a London borough
  • Be within the first 12 months of your apprenticeship

You’re not eligible for an Apprenticeship Oyster photocard if you:

  • Live outside of London, even if your apprenticeship is in London
  • Already have an Oyster photocard, a Freedom Pass or a Bus & Tram Discount photocard
  • Are on a planned break from your apprenticeship programme
  • Are on a pre-apprenticeship access programme, such as a traineeship

To apply for your Apprentice Oyster photocard, you’ll need:

  • Your Unique Learner Number (ULN)*
  • A UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN)*
  • A colour, digital passport-style photo
  • An active, valid email address
  • A valid debit or credit card to pay the £20 administration fee

Our Enrolment Officer will contact you within the first few weeks of your apprenticeship to supply you with your ULN and UKPRN, so you can apply for your photocard online.

Young people living in a London borough aged 16-17 can apply for a 16+ Zip Oyster photocard to buy child-rate Travelcards and Bus & Tram Passes; and pay as you go at half adult-rate on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London.

Londoners aged 16 or 17 on 31 August can travel free on buses and trams; and those aged 18 on 31 August who are still in full time education (including an apprenticeship) can also apply for a 16+ Zip Oyster photocard that allows free bus and tram travel.

Council Tax Reductions+

You’ll usually have to pay Council Tax if you’re 18 or over and own or rent a home. A full Council Tax bill is based on at least 2 adults living in a home, and spouses and partners who live together are jointly responsible for paying the bill. You’ll get 25% off your bill if you live on your own, or if no-one else in your home counts as an adult. You’ll usually get 50% discount if no-one living in your home, including you, counts as an adult.

If you are earning £195 a week or less for the duration of your apprenticeship, you may not be counted as an adult for Council Tax. Please contact your local council to find out if you qualify as an adult or if you’re eligible for a discount.

To apply for a discount, your local council is likely to require a declaration from your employer stating that you won’t be paid more than £195 a week, and confirmation from Apprenticeship Connect that you are undertaking an Ofqual-recognised apprenticeship scheme.
