Recreational and Vocational Courses

We provide a diverse range of courses, both recreational and vocational. Tutors are selected for their knowledge as well as their ability to deal with a wide range of students. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and, as there are tests or exams in very few courses, students are able to learn a new skill at their own pace! Courses run from late September and they usually last ten weeks.

We hope that you will find something of interest on our courses page. If you are unsure about which course to choose we can provide you with advice and guidance to ensure you make the right decision, for further information please contact us

First Class / Induction

During your first class your tutor will provide health and safety information should there be an emergency while you are attending

Payment plans can be discussed for BSL Fees.
Exam fees, where applicable are not included in course fees unless stated but are payable separately upon registration of the exam.

Fee Refunds

There is no entitlement to an automatic refund of fees. However where the centre has cancelled a course and transfer to an alternative course is not possible a refund will be given.

Refunds will only be authorised onto the card made for your original payment. If payment is made by any other means a refund will be requested from Dudley MBC as a direct payment.

Learners who choose to withdraw from a course are not entitled to a refund – In exceptional circumstances a part refund fee may be approved, from which an administrative charge will be made.
