We don’t have a library but we do have an Open Study which is open to all Adult Education learners offering:

Refer to Fees chart, proof of benefit will also be required if it is a funded course.
Yes – Students 14-16 pay £10 per hour for all courses + Exam fee + Admin fee if applicable. Proof of age required.
We currently have a standing order payment plan (4 x equal payments) and also an Instalment plan x 2 payments). Both plans require forms to be signed off by students (in person) together with the first payment (inclusive of any set-up fee) and a signed/dated Standing Order Form & Payment Plan which is sent to the Finance team who monitor payments and send forms to the bank. How does setting up a standing order work? See above - available for single courses over 12 weeks and costing over £150.00 Tell me about the Instalment Plan. See above - available for single courses over £100.00 and under 12 weeks.
Discussed in person with office Manager pending income and circumstances.
Refer to Fees chart, proof of benefit will also be required if it is a funded course.
You may qualify for help from our Discretionary Student Support Fund or Bursary’s, our Registered Charity. Give student the bursary’s form and pass on to Ros once complete, the student is still required to pay 50% of the course. (The DLS Funds Officer will consider completed application together with evidence). However, we recommend that students who really can’t afford the balance should think seriously before committing to the course as the DLS/BTAS funds are limited and any help forthcoming may only cover a minimal amount so students will ultimately be responsible for the balance of the outstanding amount.
All evidence must be current and dated within the last 4 weeks. Refer to fees chart for specific benefits and evidence required. I only have my entitlement letter for my benefit but it is not in the last 4 weeks. We must have evidence that is current and dated in the last 4 weeks. If the entitlement letter is out of date we will also need a bank statement within the last 4 weeks showing that you still receive the benefit.
We will need your proof of benefit, and if this is not dated within the last 4 weeks we will also need a bank statement showing the payment going into your account.
This will be refunded back to you automatically once you have completed the course and sat all the exams. This is generally the term after the term in which the course has ended. Deposits cannot be transferred from one course to another. Students must pay a new £50 deposit each academic year.
All courses non-funded: £10 per hour plus exam fees and any other fees.
It is possible but we would require a new signed, Standing Order form. It is the student’s responsibility to cancel the original SO but not before the new one is set up – start date to be agreed.
Generally the cost of examination, registration (with the awarding body), and administration will be included in the course fees. However, there are some exceptions: please read the description of your course carefully – this will tell you whether there are any additional costs to pay. All examination, accreditation and administration fees are non-refundable.
Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans to pay for courses and training that help with your career or help get you into work. Please note these are only available for levels 3 and above. You only start paying back the loan once you are working and earning above £25,000 a year.

Full fee payers may enrol over the phone by credit/debit card; you can enrol in person at the Sidcup, Erith or Brampton centre. Students paying a concessionary fee on-line are required to bring evidence of concession to one of the centres within 7 days of enrolling. After 7 days, if the evidence and/or balance has not been received, they will be withdrawn from the course but will not be refunded the initial £25.00. This has now been extended to students enrolling by telephone or in person.

If you hold GCSE’s in both Maths and English at Grade C or above in the last 5 years, or equivalent, then you may be exempt from sitting the assessment. However, some courses still require you to sit an IA and interview before enrolment. Proof of qualifications will be required.
Fees are still payable even if you withdraw from your course, therefore you should not cancel your standing order. Outstanding fees will be pursued.
