    I’m going in to hospitality and carpeting, I’m in the school kitchens and would like to hopefully become a cook of a school, i love my work and I need more hours/money so to progress  I’m going back to college. Never to old to learn, I read you have contacted you local uni that’s prob the best thing. I am sure depending on income you can get funding, a friend went through the open university learning from home online and was funded.

    I hope that it does work out for you, good luck xx

    Hi there,

    I have recently looked into this. If you’re looking at a Level 2 course and can prove you receive benefits then it’s likely that it would be free. My course is a part time course one day a week. If it’s level 3 or above there is no funding but you should be able to explore an adult learner loan etc. Have a chat to admissions and good luck. Kx
