We want to ensure that all children and families are supported by a well-trained, quality workforce, so where we can we subsidise the cost of qualifications and courses making learning with us more affordable.

Where we are not able to subsidise course fees we offer payment by instalments and in some cases advanced learner loans.

Get in touch to see how we can support you here.

Alternative funding streams may also be available dependent on the individual circumstances.

We work in partnership with the Council's Bedfordshire Employment and Skills Service (BESS) who may be able to fund all or some of the course you are applying for.

For further information and funding application forms, e-mail: or call a member of our team.
