We have a range of courses that may be available FREE, depending on your personal circumstances.

Free Level 3 Courses

If you are aged 19 or over and do not already have a level 3 qualification (or higher), you can access a free level 3 qualification. If you already have a level 3 (or higher) qualification but are unemployed or earn less than £18,525 per annum, you can also access these qualifications for FREE through the government’s ‘free courses for jobs’ offer.

If you are currently unemployed, your Universal Credit will not be affected while studying and courses are available in a range of delivery options, including Distance Learning, to make it easier to study if you have other commitments.
