Frequently Asked Questions 2018-04-17T21:41:42+00:00
What are the eligibility requirements? 2018-11-20T02:06:26+00:00

All the courses are government funded by ESFA. Learners need to have lived in the EU for the last 3 years for purposes other than study and be over 19 on 1st September 2018 (DOB before 31/08/1998), and have recourse to public funds to access the courses. Non EU citizens will have to provide evidence of this to the training provider to secure a place (passport and visa evidence).

Learners aged 19-23 must have a full level 2 (5 GCSE Grade A-C/NVQ 2 or BTEC 1 st or above to be eligible) for a certificate course. Apprenticeship learners are not eligible.

How long does it take to complete a course? 2018-11-20T02:07:19+00:00

Most certificates are completed in between 8 and 12 weeks depending on the course chosen. Learners will be issued with 1, 2 or 3 workbooks and assessments which they complete and return to the training provider for assessment. All courses can be completed paper-based or on line.

Can I do more than 1 course at a time? 2018-11-20T02:07:56+00:00

No. But you can progress quickly onto another course once all assessments have been completed, returned and assessed by the training provider. Once you have finished your programme contact us to apply for other courses.

Why is there a withdrawal fee? 2018-11-20T02:02:17+00:00

Training providers get no funding if the learner does not complete the course, so a withdrawal fee is charged to cover the up-front costs incurred (admin, induction and workbook) the training provider incurs, which they can’t recoup if you don’t complete the course.
