Financial information

For people aged 16-18 there is no cost as the programme is fully funded by the government under the Apprenticeship programme.  For eligible people over this age, the government expects employers or employees to contribute 50% of the cost of training, and VTS has reduced this to £500.00 However, VTS will waive this fee on the understanding that the learner agrees to attend one training day at our nearest centre, on a date to be agreed in advance.
