Course Funding


In association with the Alderman Newton's Educational Foundation we can offer grants to individuals aged under 25 years (subject to status).

They are a Leicester-based charity and can help people who are, or one or more of their parents are, normally resident in the Diocese of Leicester, which broadly includes the City of Leicester and most of the County of Leicestershire.

To apply for a grant you would need to complete an application form, but initially, give us a call on 0116 2387609 to discuss your funding and course choice with a member of staff at the Forest Nail & Beauty Centre or email us on
