Pricing & Funding Overview

Whether you are looking for CIPD, ILM or other courses, self-funding, using ELCAS, or looking to apply for a scholarship you are in the right place.

What are my study options?

You can choose from our Essential, Professional, or Immersive study plans. You have the freedom to study in a way that suits your lifestyle and the way you like to learn.


Essential lets you study online, on demand and at your own pace. It is ideal for independent and tech-savvy learners.

It is the lowest priced of our three plans, but our unique Student Care service is always there for you. This means that you can always get help and support if you need it – from a person, not an algorithm. You can also buy add-ons in the form of tickets for scheduled webinars, recordings of webinars and one-to-one planning and feedback sessions with a subject specialist.


Professional comes as close as possible to the experience of studying in college. You will be placed in a group of students and a tutor will deliver lessons in an online classroom with structured feedback. You will get a timetable showing exactly when you will be studying. Student Care is also available if you need it.


Immersive gives you a one-to-one learning experience personalised for you. Your private tutor provides coaching, guidance and support and you set the pace and agree your own timetable. It is ideal if you want to learn and qualify quickly or if you have been out of studying for some time and want to build up your confidence.

Self-funding students

The Essential Plan could be right for you if you are:
A student who is self-funding your studies. You can pay by instalments, interest-free over seven months following payment of an initial deposit. This allows you to spread the cost of achieving the qualifications that will get you into a new career, or help you climb the ladder to a better paid and more rewarding role. We manage this directly and it is not arranged through a loan company.

We are passionate about helping people who are genuinely committed to building a career, so if you are a minimum wage-earner, or on a zero hours contract, contact us and we will try and find a solution that works for you.

ELCAS training provider

We are an approved learning provider for the MoD (Ministry of Defence) and a member of their Enhanced Learning Credit Provider List (ELCAS). If you’re in the Armed Forces, or have recently left, we can help you use your ELCAS funding to study for the career that will suit you perfectly. Contact us for more information.

Other training costs

We offer in-house Company Training on any of the modules covered by CIPD qualifications.
