What does EMA stand for?
EMA is a shortened name for Education Maintenance Allowance.

When do you get it?
EMA is only available for those who are going on to further education, this is sixth form or college.

What is EMA?
EMA is a weekly allowance that is to be spent on equipment for sixthform/College and also to cover the costs of travel.

How to apply
To apply for EMA you will need to download an application form from the Education Maintence Allowance website or from you learning/Career advisor. Then all you need to do is fill it in and post it.

Do i qualify for EMA?
If your parents earn less than £30,000 a year you will be entitled to either £30, £20 or £10, so it all depends on the home owners yearly income. You may also recieve bonuses depending on your attendance this is normally 95% so anything less then you may not be able to recieve that £100 bonus you really want!

How long do you get it for?
you will be entitled to EMA for three years but will have to re-apply each year as yoour parents yearly income may have changed, therefore resulting in you either being entitled to more or less.

How do you recieve the money?
your weekly allowance will be paid into your young person's bank account on the following week. You wil need to hand in your EMA card with it all signed by the lesson tutor and hand it in every Friday to the person who deal's with this. You will then receive the money in your bank account the following thursday.

yoiu will still be entitled to EMA. Having a part time job will not affect the amount of money you will recieve.

What if my parents recieve benefits?
Parents recieving bebefits will not affect what you are entitled to. This money is for you not your parents.

How do i use mine?
I am entitled to £30 a week. I spend as much money as i need on equipment (pens,pencils...). I spend quite a bit of this money on clothes so that i look respectable. I also make sure i save £10 out of the £30 i recieve to pay for driving lessons and for University fees

I wish this had been around when I was doing my A levels - it would have been really useful.
