Hi I'm on Universal credit and pip i get enhanced living and I'm waiting for reconsideration for my mobility which is currently in standard, I was on dla which entitled me to a mobility car which was taken away due to pip, I've recently reapplied as my condition has worsened and my depression has worsened. I am not working currently I suffer with psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis and depression, I hold a master degree in social work, I'd like to career change my career but continue to use my skills I've developed over the years. I was feeling positive last month and asked universal credit if I could get funding for a course to get me into work, I was told I could only get funding at entry level, which is no good to me with a master degree. I've tried applying for other jobs but my confidence is at an all time low, how can I get funding for my career change?
