Other Entry Requirements

Multiply courses are funded through grants from the West Midlands Combined Authority based on Government rules. This means we can usually only offer places to people in employment who have lived in the UK for at least 3 years. (There are some exceptions for EU citizens with settled or pre-settled status and some other immigration statuses).

Proof of ID will be required when you sign up for a class, e.g. Driving licence, Passport, or another valid photo ID.
