Learner Fees Policy
Our courses are subsidised by the West Midlands Combined Authority. The fee quoted in the prospectus or on our course finder, is the learner’s contribution towards the cost of the courses. We are aware of the current economic situation and many of us will be affected by changing circumstances. In these difficult financial times we believe that our competitive fee pricing compares very favourably with other colleges and learning providers in the area.
Tuition Fees are based on £3.50 per guided learning hours.
In addition, some exam-based courses may require a registration fee and/or exam fee. For some practical courses you may need to buy some materials or tools.
Fee Discounts and Remission
Fee discounts for those on JSA/ESA/Universal Credit or active benefits will apply. Literacy and Numeracy courses including Family Literacy Language and Numeracy throughout the service continue to be FREE.
