Further information about our courses and services Cost of our courses All of our courses are individually priced depending on: • varying course hours; • the number of learners that can attend; • and/or specialist facilities or venues. For many of the courses you will see three prices: • first is the full price that most people will pay • second is for those who are claiming the state pension • third is for those claiming universal credit, although entitlement to universal credit is not an automatic justification for a reduced fee due to the nature of how it is calculated. Please ring on 01904 554277 for clarification and support or go to www.yorklearning.org. uk/policies and look at the fee policies under ‘Booking Your Course’. You are required to produce evidence of entitlement to a reduced fee within two weeks of enrolment. If you fail to do this we may cancel your place.

Can I spread the cost of the course fee? Spread the cost of any course over £120 via direct debit with four payments spread over four months. We are occasionally able to set up payment schedules over a longer period of time, but this cannot extend beyond the end date of a course.

60

Please note that once a direct debit is started you cannot cancel it without confirming with us that this is okay. Cancelling without permission will result in us invoicing you for the full amount. It is important to understand that a direct debit is not a method of paying for part of the course – just a way of spreading the full cost of the course over a number of months.

Can I get any help with course costs? We understand that for some people the cost of an adult learning class can be a barrier to attendance. At times we might be able to help with course costs including; travel, books, materials or if appropriate, childcare. Please ring 01904 554277 to see if you’re eligible for support.

Examination fees All exam and registration fees are included in the cost of a course unless stated otherwise. However, if you complete a course and are unsuccessful in your final exam we will ask you to pay an additional fee to re-sit the exam.

Refunds A full refund will be given under the following circumstances: • The course time or date changes after you’ve signed up and you can no longer attend. • The course closes because there are insufficient numbers on the course. • You signed up over the phone or via our


online booking system and change your mind within 14 days of the booking. Please note this does not apply if the course starts within the 14 day period or if the course has already started when you book. We only offer a refund outside of these reasons in exceptional circumstances. Once a course has started we cannot offer any refunds as the fee helps to pay for the course itself. All refunds offered in exceptional circumstances will be subject to a ÂŁ15 administration fee.

Supporting you to sign up for the right course If you are unsure whether a course is suitable or not, please contact us and we can either advise you over the phone or arrange for a one-to-one appointment. Where there are several different levels of a course it is best to contact us to discuss which level would suit you. Some of our courses, including English, maths and some computer courses, require you to take an assessment prior to starting the course. This is to ensure you are on the correct course.

Booking a place on a York Learning course Some of our courses fill up very quickly. This is because our policy is to offer current students, who have attended for the previous term, priority booking. We also offer 24-hour advance priority booking to learners who sign up for our newsletter (see page 4 for details).
