Childcare support

If you are the legal guardian of a child who requires childcare whilst you study, we may be able to offer funding towards the cost of your childcare. If you receive government free childcare hours (NEG) you must use this in the first instance to cover your timetable. Any hours outside of the 15/30 hours - the College may be able to support.
