Important changes to our concessions

We have expanded our concessions to include a greater range of courses and to provide the opportunity for concession to apply to more people.

Some examples of how the new concessions could benefit you are:

Woman handling money

Are you in paid employment and earn a salary of less than £18,525 per year?

If you are in paid employment and earn less than £18,525 (living outside of the Greater London Authority), previously you were entitled to 100% concession on course codes ending in FF or FC (including exam fees) if you earned less than £17,374.50. You'll now be entitled to 100% concession (including exam fees) for courses ending in FF, plus 50% concession on courses ending in PF and 20% concession on courses ending in LC.

Healthcare workers

Are you employed by or a retiree of the Armed Forces, Emergency Services or NHS?

If you are an active or retired member of the Armed Forces, Emergency Services or NHS, previously you were entitled to a 10% concession on courses ending in FF, FC or PF. This has changed to entitle you to a 10% concession on courses ending in FF, PF and LC.

Coins

Are you in receipt of any of the state benefits listed below?

If you are in receipt of any of the following state benefits, previously you were entitled to 20% off course codes ending in FF, FC or PF. You will now be entitled to 50% concession on courses ending in FF or PF and 20% concession on courses ending in LC:

These are just some of the examples of how concessions could help you cover the cost of your course. For full details please read our Concessions Guide, call us on 03000 41 22 22* or speak to a member of our centre staff. As part of the changes to our concessions, it will no longer be possible to use both a discount code and concession on the same enrolment. Please refer to our Concessions Guide or speak to a member of our staff for details of whether a concession or discount code may be of greater benefit to you.

The changes to our concessions will take effect from the 19th May. Additional financial support may also be available if you cannot meet the costs of your course, including the course fee and cost of exams, travel, books, equipment and childcare.
