This is a course where you will start to learn how to fix a leaky tap, basin or pipe on the way to building your confidence and saving yourself a few pounds by learning some simple plumbing techniques.

Starting at the very basics you will learn how to successfully join two pipes together so that there are no leaks. Progressing on through learning the art of stopping a leaky tap you will develop the skill to fit the whole basin and its associated fittings as well as being able to install a domestic cold-water tank. This is a highly practical course that shows you how you can learn to overcome fears and deal with everyday situations with confidence.

Please note there will be no sessions on 18/02/2021

Also note the plumbing room is shared room with the pottery courses. Noise levels can be louder than expected on occasions.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2020 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options.
