A number of our courses are supported by Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) which enables Community Learning to offer many of the courses at a reduced cost. Due to funding restrictions, it may be necessary to limit the number of courses each learner can access at a reduced cost. This may result in learners being asked to pay an additional cost of £3.50 per teaching hour
