NGB Course pricelist

Courses are paid for in different ways. As a WHC student you can allocate some ‘practical time Credits’ towards them which the College pays for or pay for them direct at a discounted rate. For some of the courses other funding can sometimes be applied from from Skills Development Scotland.  Ask us for more information about this.
