Not sure how you will support yourself in College?

Here at the College, we understands that everyone has different needs, not only around learning but also in the support needed to come to college.

We will help you every step of the way to make sure your time in college is hassle free. If you are aged 19 or over and on a further education course at the college, help is available with the following costs.


To be eligible, you need to:

  • live 1.5 miles or more from your college centre of attendance/placement
  • be enrolled on a full time course (at least 3 days per week)
  • have a household income up to £25,000

Please note: if you qualify for a travel pass, you will need to pay a £20 contribution per term.

Student Fund

The college has a limited fund to offer support to students with additional on course costs such as books, stationery, materials and equipment.

You can apply for this support if your household income is up to £25,000.

FE Meals

You can apply for one meal a day at one college centre to the value of £2.41 each day you attend.


The college offers childcare support from the Discretionary Learner Support Fund. Childcare can be provided for children aged 0-12 years and student parents can choose whichever childcare setting is most appropriate for them.

External childcare can only be paid to a provider who is listed on the compulsory part of the Ofsted Childcare Register and/or the Early Years Register.

To find out if you are eligible, please contact the Childcare Manager on 252 3673.

Tuition Fee Waiver

All courses have fees attached to them. Discounts and waivers may be available based on age, personal circumstances, the type of course you are studying and the level you are studying at.

Your fee liability status will be established as part of your enrolment assessment.
