How much does this course cost?

All of the fees we charge are based on the level of government subsidy we get for you as a learner. We get these subsidies from the Education & Skills Funding Agency, a central government agency that is responsible for funding schools as well as adult learning. The level of subsidy we get is based on a combination of the type and the level of course that it is and your personal situation (how long you have lived in the EU for, your age and employment status, etc.). Some courses are fully subsidised so you do not have to pay anything, others are partly subsidised and some have no government subsidy whatsoever so are funded entirely from your course fees.

Don't worry if you are in any doubt as to how much you will need to pay as we will invite you to an information session before the course begins. At this session we will discuss all aspects of the course with you including fees.

What qualification will I receive?

You will receive a CACHE L1 Award Caring for Children.
