How much does it cost?

English and Maths (GCSE & Functional Skills) are FREE to anyone that does not already have a GCSE at grade C/4 or above.

For other courses with a fee, many students are eligible for fee remission. Those working and earning below £16,009 per year or in receipt of certain benefits may be entitled to their course for FREE.

For Level 3 Diplomas, applicants will receive information about how they can apply for a Level 3 Learner Loan to cover the fees.

For further details please speak to a member of the adult learning team.
