The service, which delivers courses to 12,600 learners each year, offers a wide range of educational opportunities including apprenticeships and workplace training as well as English and maths support and leisure and pleasure courses in more than 80 venues across Oxfordshire.

Adult learners can apply for grants and bursaries to help pay for courses and training. Usually, you don’t have to pay this money back.
For most grants and bursaries you apply directly to the organisation that gives them out. They’ll have an application form and will be able to tell you if you qualify.

Turn2Us provides information about education grants and has a grant search.If you’re a parent, you might also be able to get help with childcare costs while you study.

City & Guilds offer bursaries to people who study for a City & Guilds qualification.

Dance and Drama Awards are available at some specialist private schools and help with fees and living costs.

The General Federation of Trade Unions Educational Trust has grants for students of economic theory and history, industrial law and industrial relations.
