Financial Support

Bursary Funding

The College has access to a number of Bursary funds aimed at supporting learners with specific financial difficulties which may prevent them from taking part in learning.  Eligibility for the funds will be based on household income, and recent evidence of this must be submitted with your application. Bursary applications can be made online.

PLEASE NOTE – Higher Education courses, Full Cost courses and Apprenticeships are not eligible for the college bursary. If your course is HE, you will need to apply for support through Student Finance England. Further details are available via the following link

Childcare Funding

The Bursary Fund can help to subsidise childcare costs for eligible learners aged 20+. Eligibility for funding is dependent on household income. A maximum childcare amount of £240 per week per child is available.

To apply you must first complete a Bursary Application online. Once you have completed this, please fill in the  Childcare Subsidy application below.

If your programme of study requires a period of compulsory work experience you will need to apply for this separately by completing the Childcare Work Placement Form. Any assistance with this will be subject to available funds.
