What is ELCAS?

ELCAS is a government initiative that offers financial support to members of the armed forces seeking to improve their qualifications and skills through higher education or vocational training. The scheme aims to facilitate the transition of military personnel into civilian careers by providing funding for courses that enhance their employability.
