Step Company fees are priced at £40 per term which can either be paid in three instalments (termly) or in one payment of £120 (full academic year). The fees, which equate to £1.60 per hour, for this significantly subsidised training are made possible due to the generous funding that we receive from the Jack Petchey Foundation.
