Paying for your course

How much does it cost?

The fees are quoted beside each course and include tuition fee, administration fee and materials / examination cost, unless otherwise stated in the course details.

Some courses are eligible for fee remission or may be free, depending on the course. You may be eligible for free tuition if you are in receipt of:

  • Job Seekers Allowance (JSA);
  • Employment Support Allowance (ESA) in the Work Related Activity Group;
  • Universal Credit or other State Benefit (if you wish to enter employment and believe that skills training will help you to do so).

You must provide current evidence of your entitlement to fee remission with your enrolment form, or when you enrol in person, or your enrolment will not be processed. If you do not have current proof documents, contact the Benefit Enquiry Line on 0345 608 8545 to obtain a copy of your entitlement letter.

You cannot claim fee remission for courses that have NR (no remission) listed beside the fee.

Methods of payment

Following learner feedback, we do not issue invoices any more.

You can pay your course fees (if applicable):

  • in person: bring your enrolment form and pay by cash, cheque or card at the Heath Campus;
  • by post: enclose your cheque with your enrolment form;
  • by phone: indicate on your enrolment form that you wish to pay using a credit or debit card over the phone, post the form to the Heath Campus, and we will contact you to process your payment.

Please note that your place on your chosen course(s) is not secure until payment has been made.

Can I spread the cost of my payments?

Yes! Where an individual fee is over £120.00, you may pay the balance in 2 equal instalments. If you wish to choose this option please indicate this on Section 7 of the enrolment form.

Refunds and withdrawals

  1. We will only give a refund if your class closes, or if you give advance notice no later than seven working days before the course start date that you will not be taking up your place on a course. You will need to contact the Adult Learning Administration team who will make a note of your withdrawal and ask you to provide confirmation, including the reason, in writing.

    If you withdraw after the course has started, you will not be entitled to a refund. For further advice, contact the Adult Learning Administration team.
