If you are registered in more than one category, for example, FE teacher and FE learning support worker, you will only need to pay one fee. However, you will pay the highest fee of the two categories. The fee is the same whether you work full or part-time.

How to Pay

Your employer will deduct the fee from your salary at the end of March every year. If you are not in contracted employment and your fee is not paid by your employer, you will need to pay us directly. You can do this online between the beginning of February and the end of March each year.

If you are submitting a new application, the payment page is the last page of the application form.

Tax Relief

Your registration fee is eligible for tax relief and does not affect your ability to claim tax relief on existing teacher association or union subscriptions. To claim tax relief, please contact your local tax office.
