Home » Sponsorship


There are various opportunities to sponsor HELOA events and activities, and promote your organisation to our extensive membership. Our sponsors are organisations who work with our members to support them in their roles within their HE institutions and support our mission of helping students in their HE journey. Our current offer for Sponsors can be found here.

SLC’s Funding Information Services (FIS) Account Managers are a team of regionally based student finance professionals who actively engage with and provide Matrix accredited levels of training, support, information and guidance to our extensive practitioner/partner network which includes but is not limited to; national organisations, regional networks, charities, local authorities, careers advice services and providers from all across the further higher and postgraduate education sector.

The FIS Team’s service offer and delivery varies greatly from in-depth staff training sessions on aspects of SLC policies and procedures through to individual discussions on complex assessments, working closely with institutions and networks to analyse application patterns and trends or even providing/reviewing content for student facing resources and materials. The ethos and drive behind everything we do is to recognise that truly effective student finance advice is not limited to ‘one size fits all’ messages and our delivery content reflects this and is demonstrated through our engagement with IAG practitioners and FI partner organisations and networks who support students falling into targeted/vulnerable groups such as care leavers, those estranged from family, disabled students, mature students, or those under a protected immigration status such as Refugee or Humanitarian Protection.
