How much does an Industry Placement card cost?
How much depends on which of the four schemes you apply to (CSCS, ECS, PMES & SKILLcard). In CSCS’s case we charge £36.
However, in all cases, it is the Training Provider who pays, not the student.
The Department for Education have confirmed Providers are expected to pay for their students’ IP cards.
The money is available to them via their funding formulae, of which a proportion is to support facilitating work placements.
