Will I have to pay fees?

Learning Programmes at Level 3 and Below

School Leavers under the age of 19 do not have to pay fees on any full time courses, though may have to pay for their second year if turning 19 during their studies.

If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £27,295. Find more information on Advanced Learner Loans on our website.

If you are studying a part-time course and you receive one of the following benefits, or you depend financially on someone who does, you may be entitled to have your tuition fees waived:

  • Job Seeker's Allowance
  • Income Support

You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course).


Higher Education Courses at Level 4 and Above

The fee payable for your course is displayed in the table above and can be paid for in a number of ways:

  • HE Loan
  • Instalment Payment Plan
  • Payment in full

* If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates. If you are entitled to a fee concession you will be asked to provide proof of your entitlement.

It is essential that you inform us if your entitlement changes at any time during your course.

Course Information

In partnership with The Solent Civil Engineering Employers’ Group, we are proud to be offering a new Apprenticeship programme designed to prepare people for a long-term career in Construction.

This opportunity is unique and unlike other Apprenticeship vacancies. The training you will receive is front-loaded into the first 20 weeks of the course, where you receive practical training and support in a custom-built training facility, CETC, in Lee-on-the-Solent.

The training you receive on this programme ensures that you are “site ready” on your first day on site after your 20-week training programme with both your CSCS card and your CPCS card.

Once you are on-site, you will be working with a close-knit team of people completing a wide variety of tasks, including road and infrastructure development, residential housing, hard landscaping, water management/domestic drainage, and utility installation.

Employment within the Construction industry is varied and fast-paced. For the right person, it will lead to a long and promising career with many development opportunities available and enviable pay rates once you are qualified.

A typical working week (when training at CETC) will be Monday-Friday, 8 hours per day. When released on-site with your employer, working hours and days may vary.

Successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to work for one of the SCEEG employers and will receive outstanding training, competitive pay rates, and a career for life.

Desired skills:

  • Excellent timekeeping
  • Flexibility
  • Reliable

Personal qualities:

  • An interest in Construction is a must!
  • In addition, you must be hardworking, possess a good work ethic, and be reliable with excellent timekeeping
  • You must be resilient and able to keep a calm manner in testing situations and be able to work to deadlines under the instruction of your manager
  • A proactive and ambitious nature helps; always looking for something to do and being willing to go above and beyond to get the job done will see you go far in this industry


Progression

Once you are a qualified and competent Groundworker, numerous training and career opportunities are available. No other industry invests in their employee’s development like the Construction industry. Progression could include undertaking further education or a higher/intermediate apprenticeship or continuing up the career ladder in the industry.
