Barnsley Adult Skills and Community Learning

Some of our courses do have a fee but if you're on a low income, unemployed or on means-tested benefits you probably won't have to pay or could at least get a discount.

We'll talk to you about your individual situation and explain everything before you enrol. This is done so you're clear about any evidence you need to give or any fee you'd need to pay.

You can find out if you qualify for a reduction but remember not all our courses have a fee so please check that out first.

Advanced learner loans

If you're over 19 and thinking about a Level 3 qualification you could qualify for a loan to help you pay the course fee.
This loan is only repayable when you're earning over £27,292 a year, £2,274 a month or £524 a week.

How to pay

If you do have to pay a fee, once you have enrolled, you'll receive an invoice in the post.

You can pay your fees online by debit or credit card, or over the phone by calling the automated payment line on (01226 775445). The invoice will contain the reference number you will need to quote.

You may be able to pay in instalments, please ask us when you enrol.
