Fees guide 2019-07-01T12:17:29+01:00

Our fees are divided into four categories

This is the full fee for all courses.

This is a discounted fee for non-accredited courses only.

To qualify you must be:

Aged 19+ in receipt of a qualifying benefit.

Age over 65 on 31.8.19 with an annual household income of less than £25,000.

Random checks on benefits declared will be made by CALAT staff

If you are claiming a reduction you will need to be 19 yrs as at 31.8.19 and If you enrol in person you will be required to sign a self-declaration and show your benefit (which must be current) confirming you meet one of the following criteria and if it is a qualification course you will need to declare that you are taking the course because it will give you skills needed to look for work.

If you enrol online random checks will be made by CALAT staff asking for evidence of your benefit. Benefit evidence is required at assessment appointments.

You will have to pay the Overseas fee if you have not been ordinarily resident in the UK or EU for 3 years preceding the start of your course or restrictions on your leave to remain. You cannot claim any concessionary fees or apply for Discretionary Learner Support Fund (Access Fund) on the Overseas fee.

If you have been an employee of Croydon Council for more than 3 months you may be eligible for a discount on some courses. Please enquire in person at CALAT centres

If you are under 19 (as at 31 August 2019) and wish to enrol on a non-accredited course you will be required to pay a fee higher than the full fee as we do not
receive funding for under 19yrs on non-accredited courses. If you wish to enrol on an accredited course you will need to speak to a curriculum manager as you will be required to enrol on a Study Programme which, if you are eligible will be fully funded and free of charge. Alternatively you can enrol on an accredited course with the agreement of the curriculum manager and pay a higher fee than the full fee.

Fees are currently correct but we reserve the right to change them at any time.
