Helping you pay

All our courses are individually priced and most courses have three prices. The first is the full price, which most people pay, the second for those claiming the state pension and the third for those on means tested benefits. If there is only one price shown then this applies to everyone, and there are no discounts. For more information about course costs and how we may be able to help, click here. 

Course materials

On some courses the initial cost of materials is built into the fee to get you started, but you will need to provide all other equipment such as books, stationery and any additional materials.

Details of the materials you need and a breakdown of what is already included in the course fee can be found in the course information guide on our booking system.

Courses, changes and cancellations

From time to time we need to cancel or change the time or venue of a course. We will let you know if this happens and make every effort to find a suitable alternative. Where this is not possible we will issue you with a refund.

Equal Opportunities

York Learning welcomes learners from all backgrounds and is committed to providing the best possible experience for everyone. We aim to make sure that everyone can learn in an environment that is non-threatening, comfortable and free from discrimination. Our goal is to support all learners to achieve their potential and to enjoy their programme of study or the course they attend.

It is important to us that you find a course that is suitable for you. If you are not sure which course to do then please contact us and one of our team will advise you. In addition, if you need support to come on one of our programmes than please get in touch so we can discuss your needs. If you have a specific disability, learning difficulty or experience mental health problems that you think might affect your learning, then please let us know so that we can make adjustments to suit your needs.

We can discuss ways to help you learn, including how to develop relevant English, maths or computer skills for your chosen topic. If you’re claiming certain income related benefits additional help may be available for courses designed to help you into work. We may even be able to help with travel, equipment and childcare. Call us on 01904 554277 for further information.
