fees, concessions and financial support


There are three fees for most courses:
Full fee for residents of the UK or other EU countries. Concessionary fee for UK or EU residents in receipt of means tested benefits. Non EU fee for those who have not lived within the EU for at least three years. If only one fee is shown for the course, all students must pay this fee. Most fees include basic equipment but you may need to buy additional materials. However, if you join further accredited courses you will get 23 discount on your second or subsequent accredited course.

Exam fees and equipment


For most qualification courses the exam fee and basic equipment are included unless otherwise stated, but you may need to buy additional materials. See course information sheets for details. Please note: There are now fees for ESOL classes and there is no automatic concession for people aged 60+ on any course. There are still no course fees for UK or EU residents attending literacy or numeracy courses.

Concession entitlement explained


The Skills Funding Agency will only fund tuition fees for those on Active Benefits in 2012/2013. However, Hammersmith & Fulham Adult Learning and Skills Service will still continue to help you financially if you are claiming income-related/means-tested benefit, such as Income Support. If you are claiming any of the benefits listed below you will be asked to pay the published concessionary fee which represents a registration and exam fee. See below for a list of benefits.

Active benefits
These benefits are designed to support people who are actively seeking employment. If you are claiming Active Benefits (guaranteed conc. fees) and are enrolling on a qualification course, please let us know as we will be able to claim most of your fees from the funding body. We must have your National Insurance number at time of enrolment. Financial help for those on Active Benefits may be available to help with additional fees. Active Benefits are: Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) Employment and Support Allowance Work Related Activity Group For those claiming ESA Support Group, please see the other benefit categories below.

Unwaged dependent of someone in receipt of benefits Working Tax Credit household income of less than 15,276 If you are on one of these benefits and the course will improve your chances of gaining employment you may be able to pay concessionary fees if you complete a declaration to this effect.

Other claimants
You may still claim a concessionary fee if you are: 19 or older and studying for your first full level 2 qualification, although you will need to pay for exams and materials. The concession fee may still apply even if you are not completing the full qualification in a single year. Between 19 and 24 years old and studying for your first full level 3 qualification. See guide to levels on page 14.

Other benefits (may be accepted)


We will also accept the following benefits: Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA Support Group) which replaces Incapacity Benefit Income Support Council Tax Benefit (not single occupancy) Housing Benefit Guaranteed Pension Credits

Course information sheets can be found at www.hfals.co.uk

Refunds
A full or partial refund of your course fee will only be made when: 1. We close, merge or reschedule your course and you cannot get to the alternative. 2. There is a medical reason supported by a certificate or doctors letter. An administrative charge of 10 will be made for this refund. We do not provide refunds where individual sessions have to be cancelled, but will make every effort to offer an alternative session. For refunds within the above categories: If the admin manager approves your refund it will be processed and a cheque sent to you. If you paid by debit /credit card, we are only able to give you a refund directly onto the card you originally used.

Please note where a refund is approved, we are able to do this immediately for card payments but for fees paid by cash or cheque, it will be processed within one week (but at the beginning of terms this process may take longer).

Class information
Our minimum class size ranges from 8 to 12 depending on the type of class and health and safety requirements. We have planned some courses allowing for lower enrolments but the fees for these courses are higher to reflect this. If a class doesnt enrol to minimum agreed level it may, in some instances be possible to keep the class running if all the students agree to pay an additional amount. This can be discussed with the tutor.

Ive always been interested in sewing. My children wanted some new curtains for their room but buying proper ones can be expensive. Watching TV programmes like Kirsty Allsopps Handmade Britain inspired me, so I enrolled on a course. The class was very enjoyable, the teacher very knowledgeable and Ive made some wonderful, interlined curtains that look beautiful. It feels good to have done it myself! This year I enrolled on the upholstery class and I am upholstering a chair that belonged to my grandmother. Ive enjoyed being creative and I intend to keep learning. 36 Course information sheets can be found at www.hfals.co.uk

Many years ago I lived in Syria and worked for the United Nations helping refugees. When I moved to the UK and my husband and I started a family I decided to spend a few years at home with my young children. I now have six children, the oldest is nine, an eight year old and triplets aged six. While my children were young I had my hands full but at the same time I also studied very hard to improve my English. I am ambitious and I want a good future for my children and myself so I knew it was time to go back to college and get some qualifications and skills, so last year I enrolled on a level 2 childcare course, which I loved. I spent two days a week in college and one day a week in a work placement. This year I have progressed to the level 3 course which is more challenging but my tutor Iffy is excellent and very supportive. The reason I chose this college is because of the excellent quality of the course and the high progression into employment for the childcare students. The course includes a business module and my plan is to start my own childcare business straight away. 54 Course information sheets can be found at www.hfals.co.uk

After years working as a solicitor I decided I wanted a career change I knew I wanted something creative but I just wasnt sure where to start. That is where the Macbeth Centre helped me, and ultimately changed my life! A year on from my first course at the Macbeth Centre I now work as a cake decorator at the Hummingbird Bakery and I couldnt be happier with my new career. Last May I enrolled on a six week evening cake-decorating course at Macbeth with Julia. I had never done anything like it before, but I soon found out that the atmosphere at Macbeth is very supportive and friendly and everyone is very happy to help each other. I loved the course so much that I enrolled on her more advanced course and then a substantial year long cake-decorating course with Patricia who has taught me techniques in royal icing, pastillage and sugar paste and we are now learning wired sugar flowers. I worked very hard and would go home and practice and practice until I got it right. Once I felt confident I sent photographs of all the cakes I decorated along with my CV to the prestigious Hummingbird Bakery and they offered me a job. The best thing is that I have been able to completely change careers and I am excited about my career ahead all thanks to taking a short adult education class and the wonderful tutors at the Macbeth Centre. 58 Course information sheets can be found at www.hfals.co.uk
