some courses and some councils these days .. our local FE college has listed courses (popular ones ) where they wont discount, this is due to funding cuts and the ones they know people will pay full wack they dont even allow people to have a discount be it OAP or ESA :angry: which is daft as some of the now no discount courses would help people back to work

Hi Dave, I think you're right, although if it's DWP, shouldn't it be the same all over the country?
