Course prices

2014 course prices

NCT courses are priced per hour, and the hourly rate depends on:

  •  The number of hours in the course
  •  The price band of the location of the course

The course price is then rounded up to the nearest pound.

Optional membership is added to the course price. Please inform your course organiser if you are already a member, have previously been a member, or don’t want to join at the time of your booking.

There are reduced price options with up to 90% off the full price for those on low income or certain benefits. Please ask your course organiser for more details. You can also pay for your course in instalments.

If you need confirmation of the price please contact the course organiser. The best way of doing this is to find a course using the course finder, and complete the form to register your interest in a course.

"What I really appreciated is that most courses look at how to be a better mum through focusing on the baby, while NCT looks at what it means to be a parent. The course provided a safe space to talk about anything that was on my mind." Ruth, Dorking branch
