How to enrol

Most courses can be booked straight away.

If a course listing says you would need a pre-course assessment, you can either book it online or phone our Learner Services team using the details below. You will have the opportunity to meet one of our team, who will:

  • check you are on the right course
  • discuss the course requirements with you
  • make sure you pay the right fee
  • tell you about any additional costs or possible financial support.

If your course has no confirmed start date, you can phone us to express an interest. Some courses run when minimum numbers have registered and, if applicable, learners have been assessed.

Early payment discount – 10% off tuition fees

You can get a discount of 10% from tuition fees if you pay in full when enrolling, and your course is either:

  • 16 weeks or more
  • 32 hours or more

Enrolling is easy by any of the following options.

Enrolling online

You can enrol online directly for any courses that doesn't require a pre-course assessment.

For qualification courses, once you've been assessed we will send you an offer inviting you to enrol, either online or through a digital enrolment form. If you need help with enrolling, you can phone us to arrange enrolment either by phone or in person.
