Modules may be paid for either on a module-at-a-time basis or on a lump sum basis. Students (or their organisations) will be invoiced at the time of a module.

In the case of students who are PA7 apprentices, payment is in accordance with ESFA rules: that is, taken from their employers' levy accounts over the planned 5-year horizon of the apprenticeship rather than linked to module delivery.
