We want to ensure that no one turns down a place on our Workshop Days due to the cost.

We have a bursary fund that supports students and their families dependent on their situation.

Bursaries and scholarships support young people from underrepresented backgrounds (i.e. Black, Asian and ethnic minority students, disabled students and those from low-income households).


Applications for a bursary because your total taxable household income is under £30,000 can be made by entering your household income on the enrolment form. 


Bursary levels for 2024:

  • For families with a total household taxable income below £30,000, full bursary awarded where possible
