The guide showcases the wide range of courses on offer, from Higher Education and Access to Higher Education courses through to evening classes and professional recognised certificates, to help learners invest in themselves and make the first steps towards achieving their career goals. The Continued Professional Development courses are suitable for all professions and aim to help learners upskill and expand their knowledge.  

The adult curriculum covers a variety of subject areas, including Business, Construction, Creative Industries, Engineering, ESOL, Hair and Beauty, Sport, Hospitality and Catering, Motor Vehicle, Teaching and more.

The college also offers community courses in areas such as yoga, crafting and digital skills – all of which are designed to improve learners work prospects, life skills and mental wellbeing.

In line with many professions moving to remote learning, the college has introduced a number of free, online courses to offer learners flexible study options.

Philippa Firth, Assistant Principal for Adults and Higher Education, said:

“As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, there is set to be an increase in demand for skilled workers in certain sectors. Our Adult courses aim to support learners to gain valuable employability skills that will prove beneficial in the current job market and help them adapt to the ever-changing challenges in the workplace.”
