FEES & FUNDING
How much does it cost?
You may have heard about the many changes taking place in education and the ways in which course fees are now paid. However it's important to remember, even though we've indicated the full course fees in the back of this guide, there are plenty of opportunities for a full fee remission or reduced fees.
Free English and Maths for all
For anyone looking at taking or retaking Maths and/or English at Levels 1 or 2, or even as a GCSE, (if you don't already hold a grade C or above), the Government realises the importance of developing Literacy and Numeracy Skills and everyone can now study these qualifications free of charge.
For the Unemployed
Anyone who is currently unemployed and aged 19+ could be entitled to free Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 courses which have been designed to help get you back into work.
Courses for 19-23 year olds
Anyone aged 19-23 could be entitled to free courses up to Higher Education level if you are in receipt of a state benefit or if you don't already hold a qualification at the same level(Level 2 and 3 only). Or if you don't hold a level 2 qualification and enrol on a Level 1 course that can lead to the next level of study.
24+ year olds
Anyone over the age of 24 who is looking for qualifications to help them get into work could be entitled to free training for Entry Level, Level 1 & Level 2 courses if you are in receipt of a state benefit. Those not entitled to free training may be entitled to an 80% discount. For anyone 24+ who wants to study a certain Level 3 or Level 4 course, the Government supported Advanced Learning Loan scheme will enable you to learn now and pay it back later.

Advanced Learning Loans
If you are over 24 and thinking of studying for a Level 3 or Level 4 qualification in September 2015, there has never been a better time, as you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learning Loan to help you pay for your course.
The Advanced Learning Loan is available to students who are over 24 at the start of the course, have been a resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the course and never previously had a loan to do the same type and level of qualification. You must also be studying one of the following and it must be one of the
courses listed eligible for loans support:
A Level 3 or Level 4 course
An Access to Higher Education course
These loans are not means tested or credit checked and any individual who meets the criteria will be able to apply for a loan whether you're employed or unemployed.
Paying a loan back will be set at 9% of your earnings over £21,000, for example if you earn over £22,000pa, you will pay back less than £10 per month. If your earnings are below £21,000 then you won't have to pay the loan back and after 30 years, it is written off completely.
