2021 Early Bird Discount – Terms & Conditions

To ensure that the Government funding Skills & Learning receive is subsidising learning for those who are most disadvantaged in our community we’ve changed our pricing. We continue to offer some fully-funded courses to those people facing significant challenges, whilst others will pay a little more.

This also means that we have a broader range of courses on offer which benefit from our half-price concessionary scheme which is available to anyone who meets the following criteria:

Tax credits (Working Tax Credits combined with Child Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits only or Working Tax Credits combined with disability element). Household gross annual income from your current award letter should be £16,385 or less. Use your most recent award letter – if this is for the current financial year, your income will be estimated and will be accepted.
