NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of March 2021 our courses are online. Currently, due to rising Covid-19 infection rates and official guidance for pregnant women, online is the only way we can safely and practically deliver local, fully interactive and inclusive courses – a decision supported by the Royal College of Midwives.

We know how much you value our in-person courses so we’re keeping our options open for courses from April 2021 onwards. Currently you can still book these as in-person classes but we’ll only bring people back together in venues once it is safe to do so. We’ll never put you, your baby or your family at risk.

To understand more about why we're delivering our courses online please read our course FAQs. Our website also has an up-to-date section on Covid-19 pregnancy and birth information.

Our Covid-19 Price Promise: If you book a course that is already being delivered online you’ll receive a 15% discount at the time of booking. If you book a course that is currently offered as in-person, we’ll give you back 15% of your course fee if we need to move it online to ensure your safety.

Our course prices vary according to course type, length and location. There are reduced price options for those on low income or certain benefits.

The price of an NCT course will depend on the following, with prices rounded up to the nearest pound:

  • The price band of the location of the service
  • The type of service - antenatal or postnatal
  • The length of service - workshop (six hours or less) or course (over six hours)
  • The total number of hours

Optional membership can be 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.
