“It’s never too late to learn” says Andrew Parkin from Lancashire Adult Learning, part of the Nelson and Colne College Group.

The College has a full program of both adult and university programs that are now open for enrollment.

From Easter, a number of adult courses will commence – including courses focusing on employability, health and social care, ICT and digital inclusion, languages ​​and wider family learning.

Higher Education University courses, starting in September, include computing, construction, engineering, business, finance and law, early years and education, sport, health and social sciences, and higher level apprenticeships. A list of courses can be found here.

Andrew Parkin, Assistant Principal for Adult Learning and Technical Curriculum, continued: “With an impressive 96.2 per cent success rate, Lancashire Adult Learning is the number one college in Lancashire for adult learners.

“We understand that returning to study can feel intimidating, but our expert tutors make you feel at ease and guide you through the course to ensure you get out of it as much as you put in.

“Both our adult courses and university courses equip people with the knowledge they need to upskill or reskill. There is a wide range of courses, some of them free, that will help you get back into work, support your family, or climb the career ladder.”

One of the students to benefit from the courses on offer is Haider, who once faced with redundancy due to Covid-19.

He transformed his career trajectory by studying Health and Social Care at LAL.

Guided by experienced tutors, he excelled and now serves as a Medical Lab Assistant as part of the NHS Histopathology department.

Haider has displayed true resilience and ambition throughout his adult learning journey and aspires to become a Biomedical Scientist.

Likewise, in pursuit of business expansion and a higher level of service, Danielle Coombes pursued Level 3 Hairdressing to upskill and elevate her salon’s offerings.

Her tutors are highly skilled and knowledgeable about the hair, beauty and barbering industry, which really helped to improve Danielle’s understanding of more complex techniques. Now, Danielle is implementing these skills in her salon.
