Many courses are also free for people in receipt of certain benefits, including Job Seekers Allowance, Universal Credit and Employment and Support Allowance. If you are unsure about your eligibility take a look at our fee disclaimers or contact us. On some courses, there are also materials fees to pay, to cover the costs of equipment and materials that you use while studying. However, depending on your circumstances you may be able to apply to our Learner Support Fund for help with paying these. You may also be interested in our level 2 distance learning courses , which are all free to anyone who is 19 or older.
