All our courses are subsidised by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
Our family learning courses are FREE, and our community learning courses cost just £3 per hour. If you’re in receipt of any of the following means-tested benefits, your community learning course will also be FREE:
Payment should be made in full when booking unless you qualify for a free place.
Some courses may ask you to bring materials or ask for a small payment to cover material costs. If so, that information will be on the course details page on our website.
At the ﬁrst session we will take some details from you to enrol you on to the course. Please bring proof of beneﬁts if you are hoping to not pay fees.
It may be possible to pay in instalments for your course, if you are unable to pay the full amount up front. If you would like to pay by phone or need any help with payment options please call us on 0115 804 4363.
Flexible payment options for many of our Adult Further Education Courses and Qualifications are available or through a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan.
If you are aged 19 or over on the day your course starts you will qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan.
We can support and guide you through the loan application if you study with us. The loan isn’t means tested and you won’t pay anything back until you are earning at least £21,000 a year.Read more about 19+ Advanced Learner Loans.
