Course Fees

Many of our courses are free (English, Maths, Everyday English, Family Learning, volunteer programmes and beginner computer courses) subject to status.  Other courses (such as Childcare, Community Interpreting, higher level computer courses, Adult Health and Social Care and ESOL) are free for unemployed people actively seeking work and cost from £3.00 per hour for those in work.  However, if you are on a low income, we can help you with the fees; contact one of our centres for information.

We also maintain a Learner Support Service that can help you make informed choices about your future.
