Professional Career and Development Loans (PCDLs)
The Chippendale School is approved for Professional Career & Development Loans (PCDLs). You can apply for a PCDL if
(a) you are aged 18 or over
(b) you have lived in the UK for at least three years, and

PCDLs are administered by Barclays Bank and the Co-Operative Bank – and the Chippendale School’s PCDL registration number is 4991.
Tools and Equipment
The School provides each student with most of the tools they require to become proficient in woodworking and furniture making. The only tools that a student is required to purchase are a set of Pfeil carving chisels (approx £200) and a robust personal dust mask (approx £250). The School is able to purchase carving chisels and dust masks on behalf of the students so that they can benefit from a bulk-buy discount.
