GoLearn! update: Returning to the classroom!

From 12 April 2021, in line with government guidance, GoLearn is now able to offer face-to-face learning in centres.

Safety measures are still in place - Hands, Face, Space – and we are now offering all staff and learners the opportunity to take part in lateral flow home testing (asymptomatic testing). For more information on this, or to discuss what courses we have available, call us on FREEphone 0800 988 0308.

Please note: you should not attend class if you have Covid symptoms. In which case see: Book a test if you have symptoms.

If you are not sure which is the right course or level for you, we can give you free, impartial information and advice on learning and work to help you choose the best course.

Enrol for the course

Note: We are unable to offer places to learners returning to study the same 'learning aim' on qualification courses.  Following initial assessment we will do our best to provide an appropriate course. However, where this is not possible we will endeavour to signpost you to alternative providers.

What happens next

When you enrol for any of our adult learning courses you will be sent an enrolment pack including a learner handbook which details all the information you will need to know, including support available and your Unique Learner Number that is issued when you enrol.

It applies to all adults who:

  • can prove residency for 3 years prior to 1 September in the UK or European Economic Area (eg a European Union country, or Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway)
  • are not full time students at school or college.

Other terms and conditions apply, please check at enrolment.

Adults in full time education, those not meeting the residency criteria and in certain other circumstances will be charged 2 times the course fee.

If you receive certain benefits you can get a discount. Even if you are not receiving benefits, you may be entitled to financial help from the Learner Support Fund.

If the cost is more than £50, you may be able to pay your course fee in instalments - please ask at enrolment and see the Payment by Instalment terms and conditions.

Refunds

Refunds are only usually given if we close a course. However, consideration will be given to written requests from learners who have to withdraw on written medical advice or in exceptional circumstances. These refunds are subject to an administration charge of £10.

Disability or support need

If you have a disability or support need we will do our best to provide extra help and make classes and learning accessible to you. Please speak to staff about your particular needs or complete the section on the enrolment form.

Minimum Numbers and Cancellations

We may have to close a course if the enrolment is low or sometimes merge with another course and move to another venue. If we do have to close a course, we will let you know as soon as possible (at least 1 week) and arrange a refund or help you transfer to another course.

We suggest that you do not buy materials or equipment relevant to your course until you know the course is running.
