Due to ABC introducing a substancial charge for the support they give we have had too increase our fees, this has increased the weekly class to £25 a session (less than £8.33 an hour). Payment for this course has been seperated into 5 week monthly payments of £125 payable by direct debit to be set up on enrolment over 7 months (with additional administratuion fee paid on entrance). WE hope this payment plan eases the costs for our students as we still feel this is excellent value for an excellent run course -having no control of costs incurred or lack of government funding.
