Paying for your course
Course costs depend on:
- the length of your course
- if your course leads to a qualification
- if your course carries a government subsidy
If the cost of your course is over £120.00, you may be able to pay in instalments. You'll need to ask us about this when you enrol, however, this option is only available when booking by telephone.
Some courses are free to everyone (these are listed as 'free' in the course guide).
You may also be entitled to attend a course for free if you're on a low income - this could be if you receive benefits, such as Job Seekers' Allowance. You can find out more about this in our guide or ask us whether you're entitled to a free course when you enrol.
Note: There may be an administration fee to pay for some courses.
Reduced fees for courses
We offer reduced fees for some courses, including age-related reductions for some recreational courses - you'll need to check this when you enrol.
Note: In order to claim a course fee reduction, you'll need to provide proof of your entitlement.
Additional costs for courses
There may be additional costs over and above the listed fee for some courses - please check when you enrol.
If you're unsure about what you should be paying or have any queries about your course, contact us for more information.
