Booking and Enrolling:
Booking – Contact the centre to enquire and book a place onto your chosen course. An administrator will take your payment and will complete your booking – once the booking is confirmed the office will not contact you unless there are changes you need to be aware of.
Enrolling – On the first day of your course you will be given an enrolment form to complete. All sections are required. The college is funded through the skills funding agency and relies on the funding that each form draws down. If learners opt not to complete this form fully an additional 20% fee would apply (replacing the government funding element).
Places on any of our courses are only secure on receipt on the FULL payment. Please note that early enrolment is advised as classes do fill quickly.
To book your place please complete the payment form and return using any of the methods above.

Extra Payment Information:
Deferred payment agreement (DPA) – The college offers the facility to spread the cost of course fee for courses with 10 or more weeks. Please note this does not include the additional material / resource fee. After discussion the office will set up the payment plan and the learner will be required to sign the DPA. Please note should you choose to withdraw from the course you will still be liable to pay any outstanding instalments.
Concessionary fee – Most of our courses display two fees – a full fee and a concessionary fee. The concessionary fee is the lower amount offered and is available to learners in receipt of the ‘Guaranteed Credit’ element of the Pension Credit or who are in receipt of a means tested benefit. To be eligible to claim the advertised concessionary price learners need to supply their National Insurance Number and photocopied proof of a document relevant to the benefit and academic year.
Funded courses – The college is able to offer some funded courses which are advertised in the programme. To be eligible learners must be 19 years or above, have lived in an EEA (European Economic Area) country for the last 3 or more years, meet prior learning criteria, not have a Grade C or above (or equivalent) in the chosen subject area.
Learners who have NOT lived in an EEA country for the last 3 or more years – The college is still able to accept bookings; there would be an extra cost of 20% of the course fee.
