Kirklees College has launched its new Adult course guide for the upcoming academic year, featuring hundreds of courses for adults aged 19 and over starting from September 2021.
Available online or at one of the college campuses, the specialist courses aim to support adults across all areas of learning, from hobbies to degree level, to achieve their goals, whether that is to gain a new skill, qualification, return to education or upskill in a current job role.
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 unlock their potential.
Backed by £95 million in government funding as part of the government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, adults aged 24 and over looking to achieve their first Level 3 qualification can now enrol on a free Level 3 course instead of applying for an Advanced Learner Loan. These courses are equivalent to an advanced certificate, diploma or A Levels and are designed to help learners gain in-demand skills and secure great jobs.
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.
The new Adult Learners website page is dedicated to adult learning and offers a destination for learners to find out more information about the adult courses, short courses, apprenticeships and online learning available at Kirklees College.
