 How to Enrol

To enrol on Mindlift courses you need to complete a pre-course assessment (PCA). We will assess your skills level to ensure we choose the right course for you.

For fee-based courses, you pay the course fees after your assessment to complete your enrolment.

If you are on benefits or a low income, you can apply for reduced fees before or at your pre-course assessment interview. 

At the Pre Course Assessment we will:-

  • check your eligibility for a concession (this can also be done at the booking stage)
  • assess your skills level
  • discuss your goals
  • recommend the right course for you

So we can check your eligibility for reduced fees and to complete your enrolment, you need to bring the following documents either when booking your appointment or to your PCA appointment:-

  • evidence of your identity
  • evidence of benefits claimed in the last three months

Find out what evidence we accept.
