Pricing structure

As a traded service within the local authority we have endeavoured to keep charges for training as affordable as possible.

We have aligned our pricing structure with the categories used by Ofsted (for payment of annual fees) i.e. the provider type which your setting is – Childminder, Sessional or Full Day care. This structure applies to all types of training

All training will be on a pay as you go basis. The only funding available from the cluster areas will be to support settings receiving Inadequate or Requires Improvement Ofsted Judgements or settings that have not yet been inspected.

Settings will be informed directly if they are eligible for any subsidies.
