Free Part-time Courses

A selection of Level 1 and Level 2 Part-time courses can now be offered free of charge subject to your income.

If you are an employed adult learner who earns less than £16,009.50 annual gross salary, you could be eligible for free* funding on a selected Level 1 or 2 part-time course. This is based on an assumed 37.5 hour contract with paid statutory holiday (£8.21 hourly rate).

You would be fully funded as long as you can provide evidence (before you start the course) - a wage slip within 3 months of your course start date, or a current employment contract which states gross monthly/annual wages. We are required to retain a copy of this evidence on file.

If you are Unemployed and receiving a means-tested benefit then the courses listed below are fully funded* for you. 

*(except any additional costs such as materials/kit/uniform or membership fees)
