Flexible Learning plays a major part in the College’s lifelong learning initiative. Skills and qualifications are usually essential in obtaining jobs which have good career prospects, job satisfaction and good financial rewards.
We live in a fast-moving technological age, so it is essential to acquire these skills and qualifications and to keep updating them. Being able to use a computer is an essential life skill, be it for business or leisure.
The Flexible Learning Centre offers a wide range of courses – from basic computer skills to vocational qualifications. All the courses are tutor-supported, and the Centre is organised so that individuals can work on their own programmes, at their own pace.
The Centre serves a wide range of clients, such as private individuals from many different age groups and walks of life, as well as people in employment who are being sponsored by their employers.
The Centre is open 5 days a week. Attendance is arranged through a diary booking system. This gives flexibility which enables students to tailor the days and times of their attendance to their own needs. This is especially useful for people who have to work shifts or who have to fit in around children and other family or business commitments.
The Flexible Learning Centre has helped hundreds of adults to overcome their fear of returning to learning, especially in getting to grips with the computer and to take their first steps to acquiring new skills and qualifications, upgrading current skills, discovering new areas of learning and achieving success which they may not have thought possible.
