Money Matters & Important Weblinks

We know that money matters, now more than ever. There are many ways to cover the cost of a course including various finance options that we can support you with, and some courses will even be free depending on your circumstances.

Free Courses for Jobs

Aged 19 or over and don’t hold a Level 3 qualification? Or, earning under the National Living Wage or unemployed?

We have a range of courses in areas including accounting, construction, early years, engineering, health & social care, mental health and welding.

Adult Learner Loans

If you are aged 19+ and studying for a Level 3 or higher-level course, you can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with the costs of your course.

There are no upfront fees to pay, your repayments don’t start until the April after you complete or leave the course and your income is over a certain threshold.

Higher Education Student Loans

Whether you want to study a university course either full-time or part-time, you are entitled to some form of financial support.

Tuition fee loans are available from the Student Loans Company for most students, for more details visit our website or call 01924 789111 for more information.

Other Free or Funded Courses

Some courses may be free based on location, level and prior qualifications. These include maths & English GCSEs and Skills for Life qualifications.

Lots of our students do not pay fees or have reduced fees, based on personal and financial circumstances.
