Free Courses

Worried about the cost of learning? 

There are no charges for many of our courses and the good news is that even more courses may be free if you have a low income and want to improve your skills.

If you earn less than £15,736.50 a year you may be entitled to a free course. All we need to see is a recent wage slip (dated within the last 3 months) or a current contract showing your gross annual or monthly salary.
