Hi, thank you for your interest in our free courses.

All courses are free for anyone aged 19+ in receipt of benefits, or earning less than £17,000 a year, and learners can do as many as they like, one after another. The courses are roll on, starting each Monday.

All courses are currently held entirely online, with a couple of exceptions:

  • The Construction Pathway is held online, with the CSCS card test to be taken at the N-Gaged training centre in Brislington, as is the Warehousing and Storage Pathway with forklift training.
  • The Security Guard training with free SIA badge is held online with two days in a classroom for the First Aid training, and Stop and Search training. For this to work we would need a cohort of 6 learners from approximately the same area- the Security course is the only one which requires a cohort.

The online courses are flexible, with no set hours for live online tuition (with the exception of Security) so learners can fit them into their lives, with tutor support available during office hours via phone, email or drop-in Microsoft Teams sessions.

Most courses are course-work based, but some do have online exams, namely; Security, Highfields Award in Accounting, and AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping. For the exam, learners will need a PC or Laptop with a camera, and a smart phone for the remote invigilation app. The Award in English also has a Speaking and Listening assessment to be held on Microsoft Teams.

The referral process is very flexible- learners will need to complete the attached forms electronically, or I can do them with them over the phone, but I never enrol anyone without a chat on the phone first.

I hope this helps, and I would be happy to answer any further questions from you, your team or your participants.

All the best,

Sarah Freeman
