Looking at taking out one of these loans for level 3 accounting diploma. Slightly nervous about doing so although don't think I've a choice. Does anyone have any experience of these loans? Also, is child maintenance and child benefit taken into account as income?

I'm about to apply for one of these. This page should give you all the information you need: ww.gov.uk/advanced-learning-loans/overview. As far as I understand they are not based on your household income so I would say that maintenance and child benefit is not taken into account, but you can ring them to clarify this.

I have just been approved for a 24+ advanced learner loan for my CIPD Level 3 studies.
The loan isn't based on your income or credit history so you should be fine. You do not need to start your repayments until 2016 and/or earning over £21,000 a year. The loan however does accrue interest during this time.
I plan to repay the loan in small chunks as soon as possible.
