Community Learning

Community Learning courses are funded by Education Futures Trust and Sussex Coast College.


Basic 4-week courses: £50

Advanced 8-week courses: £95

Free courses

If you receive one of the following benefits you can get a “fee waiver” so the course is FREE:

  • JSA (Jobseekers Allowance) including National Insurance credits
  • ESA (Employment Support Allowance) WRAG (Work-related activity group)
  • Universal Credit and earning under £330 a month

Or if you are currently unemployed and receiving one of the following benefits and earning under £330 a month:

  • Income Support
  • Working Tax Credit
  • ESA (Employment Support Allowance) non WRAG
  • Housing Benefit
  • Asylum Seekers in receipt of income-based benefits

Deposits for free course bookings

When you book a free course we have to take a copy of some recent evidence (within the last 6 months) that you are entitled to the discount.

We will also ask for a returnable deposit of £5 to hold your space. This is because our funding depends on people attending the courses – we can’t claim if you don’t come!

The deposit is returned at the end of the course if you have attended the sessions.
