Learner Fees Policies
Adult Skills & Family Learning programmes for adult learners (aged 19+) is paid for by a combination of central government funding through the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and the fee paid by the learner (where applicable). The tuition fee is the fee charged by the Learning Provider for the delivery of the learning activity. This tuition fee represents only a proportion of the full cost of the course, with the remainder being paid for with grants from central government.
Learners will be expected to provide their own resources or, where available, purchase them from their tutor. Some learners will be eligible to apply for funding from the Learner Support Fund for assistance to pay for resources.
The Learner Support Fund aims to remove financial barriers to learning. Financial support is available for learners who would otherwise not be able to access the learning provision offered. This fund can help pay for specialist equipment, transport assistance, child care and course resources. Please contact the Customer Service Centre on 01522 782011 for information on the Learner Support Fund.
