Reduced fees

If you are eligible for a concession rate we will need you to indicate the reason on our enrolment form.

Please note that we are no longer able to offer a concession for learners over the age of 65.

Courses which have a code ending in P are Full Cost and have no concessions available.

On courses leading to qualifications

In 2018-19 Community Learning MK is able to offer reduced fees on most qualification courses (course codes ending in either Q or E) if learners meet the eligibility criteria.  Please click on the following link to find out more:

Learners wanting to claim the concession for qualification courses

On courses which do not lead to qualifications

These are courses which have codes which end with a letter A

You are eligible for the reduced fee if the following apply to you:

  • You receive JSA/ESA/Universal Credit
  • You receive Carer's Allowance, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, PIP or DLA
  • Or you are an unwaged dependant of someone who receives one of the benefits listed above

All applications for reduced fees must be made when you enrol.

Cancellation of courses

We may, regretfully, have to cancel courses if we do not receive enough enrolments to make them financially viable.  To avoid disappointing learners, some courses may run with a shorter duration than advertised.  You will be informed as soon as possible if either of these situations occurs with the course you have enrolled on.

For this reason, it is vital that we have correct contact details for you, and that you check your answering machine, e-mails and voice mail in the run-up to your course.  Where the course is cancelled, enrolled learners will be refunded within 7 to 10 days of the cancellation.  If you have not received a refund once 10 days have passed, please contact our Reception office on 01908 556700.
