How much will the course cost?

The cost of the course is listed on each information page. The concessionary fee is for learners who are receiving a means tested benefit. There are extra costs for materials i.e. a course book and practice book which cost £17.45. All learners undertaking the courses are expected to pay the relevant fee before the start of the course and enrolment will not be considered final until payment has been made. There is a concessionary fee available for full time students, if you are in receipt of a pension or receiving any of the following benefits:

  • Full-time Student
  • In receipt of a pension
  • Income Support
  • Job Seekers Allowance
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Personal Independent Payment
  • Housing Benefit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Employment & Support Allowance
  • Council Tax Reduction

You must send proof that you are eligible as you enrol (e.g. a copy of a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions).

 

 

What if I cannot afford it?

The fee should not be a barrier to learning welsh. There is a bursary available to help you to pay for your course fees. This is means tested and you will need to provide us with details of your household income but it could mean that some or all of your fees will be paid. You may also be eligible for assistance with paying for course materials from the Financial Contingency Fund, which includes equipment, childcare and travel. 

Contact us to find out if you are eligible.
