All the courses are government funded by ESFA. Learners need to have lived in the EU for the last 3 years for purposes other than study and be over 19 on 1st September 2018 (DOB before 31/08/1998), and have recourse to public funds to access the courses. Non EU citizens will have to provide evidence of this to the training provider to secure a place (passport and visa evidence).
Learners aged 19-23 must have a full level 2 (5 GCSE Grade A-C/NVQ 2 or BTEC 1 st or above to be eligible) for a certificate course. Apprenticeship learners are not eligible.
