The fee listed for our courses includes the tuition, resources and exam fees where appropriate. The majority of our courses are funded by the Skills Funding Agency, and this in turn may be used for match funding with the ESF (European Social Fund). Therefore your course may be part funded by the ESF as well as the Skills Funding Agency.
Funding for Accredited Courses – Level 1 or 2 GAE Courses
When claiming a funded place on an accredited course you need to be unemployed AND be receiving Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), National Insurance Credits or Employment & Support Allowance (ESA) in the Work Related Activity Group (WRAG).
If you receive other state benefits and earn less than £330.00 per month, you can apply for a funded place.
For all of the above learners, before you enrol on a course, you will be required to make an appointment to see Eileen, our IAG officer. During this appointment, you will be supported to make an action plan and will be helped to access further learning and work opportunities.
*IAG (Information, advice and guidance) is our free careers and guidance service. To book an appointment, please speak to a member of reception staff.
