Costs and funding

This course is free for all eligible learners, because we have received funding that enables us to offer certain courses at no cost. Moreover, employers may be able to claim associated costs up to £60 for this course from the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) on successful completion of the Certificate. 

In order to be eligible for free participation,

  • the employer must be an ‘SME’ (Small or Medium sized Enterprise) with less than 250 employees and turnover of less than € 50 million (EURO).

  • the learner can only attend one free course within our funding contract, although ‘progressions’ to a higher-level course may be possible.


In our experience the majority of learners qualify for free participation, so please contact us to check whether your organisation or learner is eligible – it would be a shame to miss out. 

Learners who are not eligible can still participate in the course for free; however, if you want to obtain the Certificate you will have to pay a registration and assessment fee (£60 + VAT).
