Enrol on a course

What do I need to bring on the first session?

You will need a pen, notebook and a folder. You will be asked to develop a small learning folder to keep handouts and other notes as the course develops. This will will help you keep things in order and make sure you don’t lose anything and will be evidence of your progression and achievement.

Other than this, all you will need is proof of benefit (if you are eligible for the fee remission).

If there is anything else, your tutor will discuss this with you in the first session. But we make every effort to make our courses as user friendly and cost effective as possible.

How much do the courses cost?

If you receive an income based benefit or you are a dependant of someone in your household who receives an income based benefit or you have an income below £19,305 you will not pay for tuition fees. English, Maths, ESOL, Family Learning and Essential Digital Skills courses are free for everyone.

Many of our courses are free to everyone, but some have a fee:

5 weeks £29.00
10 weeks (Computer) £73.00
10 weeks (British Sign Language) £86.00
11 weeks 'Open Awards' Level 1 courses £202.00

For courses with a fee, if you are on an income based benefit you are entitled to pay a reduced cost:

5 weeks £5
10 weeks £10

You will simply need to provide proof of benefit to your tutor when you enrol.

How do I pay for my course?

You can pay course fees online.

Fees should be paid by week 2 into a course.
