Please book an appointment to see us for advice and guidance as we will need to assess your literacy skills:
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
You can progress onto other courses such as Health and Social Care Level 2 within the framework.
