A young carer and young adult carer is someone aged 25 and under who cares for a friend or family member who, due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support. Older young carers are also known as young adult carers and they may have different support needs to younger carers.

The college operates a financial support scheme which can help students whose financial circumstances make it difficult for them to meet the costs associated with study.

All students aged 16-18 on the first day of their course will have their course fully-funded by the government (i.e. there is no course fee). Depending on the course, there may be additional costs such as equipment/uniform, DBS checks, printing and educational trips.

Now that you’ve completed your application, you’ll shortly hear from us to book an interview for your course.
