Could your next qualification be free?

This year, if you are enrolled onto a vocational qualification up to Level 2, are employed and earn less than £15,736.50 per year, you may be entitled to full fee remission – meaning that your course fees would be paid for you by this initiative (conditions apply). There’s loads of courses on offer from January that this applies to. Look out for the ‘thumbs up’ icon in our brochures for eligible courses and get in touch with the adult community education centre offering the course to find out more.

As always, we are still offering free English and Maths qualification courses up to Level 2 (conditions apply), regardless of your income.
