FEES, FINANCE AND ASSISTANCE

Fee waivers, Advanced Learner Loans and Higher Education Student Loans may be available, depending on your circumstances and the course you have chosen to study. Many students study for free, so if you are unsure please enquire and we will be happy to advise you.

How do I pay for my course? Course fees should be paid at enrolment by cash or card. We accept all major credit/debit cards, including Mastercard, Visa, Switch and Delta.

ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION DIPLOMA (HE)

Do you dream of going to university but don’t have the qualifications you need? An Access to HE course could be for you. Access to HE Diploma courses are a route into higher education for adults aged 19 and over. If you are committed to setting aside time to achieve the right level of academic development to progress onto university, this may be the route for you. The Access to HE Diploma programmes are highly regarded by universities across the UK. Students can progress onto a range of degrees including: nursing, midwifery, social sciences, paramedic, social work, health sciences, sport and physiotherapy and primary teaching. If you don’t have the appropriate qualifications for an Access to HE course we have a Pre-Access programme to allow you to progress (see page 9). Our students secure places at some of the top universities including:

• The University of Manchester • Salford University • Edge Hill University • University of Central Lancashire • Manchester Metropolitan University • Liverpool John Moores University. You are advised to check the individual entry requirements with your chosen university.

If you are aged 19-23 and do not currently have a full Level 3 qualification, then the course may be free. If you do have a full Level 3 qualification then you can apply for the Advanced Learner Loan.

This does not have to be paid back if you go to university and successfully complete your chosen degree. For more details on the Advanced Learner Loan see page 30

HANNAH ASPEY Foundation Degree Children, Young People & their Services (Awarded by UCLan) Hannah works at St John’s Primary School, Pemberton as a Special Needs Teaching Assistant. She studies one night a week and has progressed from the Teaching Assistant course. “I enjoy the course, as it’s part-time so I can still work. If I was doing three years at university I wouldn’t be able to work full-time. The course is job specific. I develop case studies about the children in the school where I work, so I can write essays and create portfolios to complement my studies”. Hannah plans to progress to the BA (Hons) Education Studies (Top-up Degree) and work towards a PGCE to become a primary school teacher, specialising in special needs. Fees are paid annually for courses lasting more than one year. Fees in this guide are for the first year of the course, unless marked * Many of our adult learners study for FREE dependent on their circumstances.

WHAT’S THE BIG iDEA? Prince Andrew, Duke of York gave a Royal seal of approval to students and apprentices who gained digital skills on the iDEA programme. Aspiring to be the digital and enterprise equivalent of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, iDEA, backed by the Duke of York, is a free online programme aimed at all the family. The Duke presented certificates, at an event held at the Turnpike arts centre in Leigh, and praised students’ and apprentices’ commitment to developing digital skills, vitally important in all modern workplaces. Andy Hargreaves, Head of Science and Computing at the College, explained how it has embraced the iDEA programme to showcase and develop learners’ digital skills.

IMPROVE YOUR MATHS AND ENGLISH

There are lots of benefits to improving your life through English and maths. Each year we transform the lives of hundreds of adults by helping them gain essential skills and qualifications. Most of the time we don’t think about English and maths, but we use these skills all the time: • At home - paying for bills, reading letters, or recipes, or even booking holidays • At work - communicating with colleagues, customers or calculating wages • In our social life - paying for shopping or petrol, sharing a bill in a restaurant, or reading a menu. With a range of courses, including Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills and GCSE, we can offer the right pathway for you to improve your skills.

FREE GCSE Maths and English You may be eligible for full funding if you do not already have GCSE Maths and English at A* - C grade, regardless of the level of other qualifications you may hold. If you would like to enrol for GCSE Maths and English to improve on your current grade we offer the new GCSE 9-1 qualification. Book an assessment and enrolment appointment to find out your options. Bring any certificates you already hold, so that our staff can help you onto the right pathway.

To book your assessment and enrolment appointment email: applications@wigan-leigh.ac.uk or call 01942 761 111 PATRICIA ELLIS Mum of four, Patricia Ellis, is managing to juggle parenting and caring for her husband, with not one, but three courses to prepare for her dream job of Teaching Assistant. The 29-year-old from Wigan is studying Functional Skills English at Parsons Walk, GCSE Maths and the Level 3 Teaching Assistant course at Leigh College, and is holding down a cleaning job at the weekends. Patricia isn’t letting her dyslexia hold her back. She is finding the College support for her learning disability invaluable - overlays and green sheets are proving helpful to bring out the words. “The learning support team is great. Tutors take the time to explain things to me, as it can take me a while to process, but I get there in the end. I’d recommend the course without a doubt.”

SARAH ROSCOE Mum of two Sarah Roscoe is following her dream of becoming a nurse, studying GCSE Maths and English, with a view to taking up Access to Health and Social Care. The 28-year-old from Golborne left school at 16 when she became pregnant with her oldest daughter Elisha. Four years later son Kayden was born. Now that the children are older, Sarah wants to follow her nursing career ambitions, which began when as a youngster, she looked after her sick grandmother. “I’ve always wanted to become a nurse and now it’s my time to do it,” said Sarah. Even though she has to juggle part-time work in a care home, with studies and family she believes it will be worth all the effort in the end.

Many of our adult learners study for FREE dependent on their circumstances. See pg 31 to find out if you will need to pay for this course.

MERVEILLE ATATAMA Merveille Atatama, originally from the Republic of Congo, is settling well to his ESOL course.

Having mastered these languages he’s now learning English. Merveille wants to continue to study in the UK to eventually qualify as a teacher. “I have a great teacher who explains everything really well,” said Merveille. “I feel a lot more confident in grammar and spelling and I’ve made lots of progress. I would highly recommend the course.”

The part-time evening option was great as it fitted in around work. The course was hard work but the tutors were very supportive and pushed me to reach my potential. The course gave me the confidence and skills to apply for other teaching positions at a higher level. I’m now Assistant Manager at One Vision, teaching adults with learning difficulties and disabilities.” Fees are paid annually for courses lasting more than one year.

This guide was printed on 11 May 2018 for the 18/19 intake. Wigan & Leigh College (the ‘College’) endeavours to ensure that the information in this publication is accurate at the time of going to publication, but because this prospectus has been printed in advance of course starting dates, all courses are offered subject to student numbers and the College reserves the right to amend, withdraw or amalgamate any of the courses, fees, services, locations or facilities described at any time before you apply for a place on a course of study. There are a number of reasons why changes to course information may need to be made prior to you applying for a place on a course at the College. These may include, but are not limited to, operational and/or academic reasons. Prospective students are therefore reminded that they are responsible for ensuring, prior to applying to study on a course of study at the College, that they review up-to-date course information, which is available by visiting www.wigan-leigh.ac.uk or by contacting us at 01942 761 111. In addition, the College may be required to withdraw courses due to cohort numbers not being sufficient - please contact us if you require information in relation to cohort requirements on 01942 761 111. Further information describing the teaching examination and other educational, pastoral and student support services offered by the College are available from www.wigan-leigh.ac.uk/college-information Documents contain important contractual information. Prospective students should therefore fully familiarise themselves with these documents prior to applying on a course to study at the College.

ADVANCED LEARNER LOANS Invest in your future

Learners aged 19+ who want to study a vocational, technical or professional qualification at Levels 3 and above are eligible to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan.

If you are aged 19-23 and you do not have a Level 3 qualification, you may not have to pay course fees. See next page for more details about fees and financial assistance.

The Advanced Learner Loan is only available to students on eligible courses at an approved institution such as Wigan & Leigh College. Eligible courses include:

• Access to Higher Education Diploma • Level 3 BTEC or NVQ Certificate or Diploma course • Level 4, 5 and 6 Certificate or Diploma. If you are aged 19-23 and you do not have a Level 3 qualification, you may not have to pay course fees. See next page for more details about fees and financial assistance.

REPAYING YOUR ADVANCED LEARNER LOAN IS STRAIGHTFORWARD. • You’ll only start making repayments when your income is more than £481 per week, £2,083 per month or £25,000 a year. • You’ll only pay back 9% of any income above £25,000 a year, see table for examples of what you’ll repay:

INCOME EACH YEAR MONTHLY BEFORE TAX SALARY

MONTHLY REPAYMENT

£25,000

£2,083

• £30

£30,000

£2,500

• £67

£35,000

£2,917

• £105

£40,000

£3,333

• £142

If you are aged 19+ it’s easy to apply • Your household income isn’t taken into account • You won’t have to pay anything back until your annual income is over £25,000 • There’s no credit check • Most learners aged 19+ or over who apply, will qualify for these loans from the UK government

JASON SAWLE Access to HE in Science student, Jason Sawle, says he couldn’t have even considered returning to study, without the support of the Advanced Learner Loan. Since the 35-year-old former street cleaner and father of two from Leigh gave up his job to take up science studies, he hasn’t looked back. He’s looking forward to specialising in Applied Biology when he returns to Leigh College to study the HNC/HND this year.

Many of our adult learners study for FREE dependent on their circumstances. See pg 31 to find out if you will need to pay for this course.
