Had an enq for autumn for a college student, probably one full day a week, depending on timetables - she is under impression that she has to pay childcare costs herself but I am sure she should get help for them as she is on benefits - anyway, if we go ahead and do contracts and the college do pay, is it then the college I need to do a contract with?

No I would say the mother of the child as it is up to her to sort out payment details and the child is her responsibility.

no its the parents that you need to contracts with

I think some places it has to be a full time course before they get help. I know that is the case with one of my families. I would definitely want the contract with the pareant

Not all colleges can pay.....it depends upon if they have funds in the kitty iyswim.

The government allocates them a certain amount and if they have already spent it/promised it then she may not get it.

Also the college only pays 90% of your bill.

She will have to find the other 10% herself!

Im not 100% but my sister did this with college and she had to pay herself and the college refunded so i would def do the contract with the parents

Good luck

keep the contract with the parent, she's the primary carer :)

cheers peeps, think I might give this one a miss it sounds like it might be a bad one for money :panic: I would want paying monthly in advance for only one day a week and I doubt she could on benefits. Think I'll steer clear now.
