Col­lege launch free adult cour­ses

Rochdale Observer - - TIME-TRIP -

HOP­WOOD Hall Col­lege has launched a new range of free adult cour­ses

The cour­ses at the Rochdale col­lege in­clude train­ing in a range of sub­jects in­clud­ing Book­keep­ing, IT, Cook­ery, Weld­ing and Com­puter Aided De­sign.

All have been cre­ated to give adults look­ing to re­train in a new field an ideal op­por­tu­nity to do so. As is such, the cour­ses will be run on a part time ba­sis and al­most all of them will be free to en­rol on.

Start­ing in Jan­uary, the col­lege will also be run­ning a num­ber of short on­line qual­i­fi­ca­tions along­side the part-time cour­ses with the aim of giv­ing adults the op­por­tu­nity to learn new skills with­out need­ing to fully re­train.

Stu­dents will be able to gain qual­i­fi­ca­tions in sub­jects such as So­cial Me­dia and On­line Safety, En­vi­ron­men­tal Sus­tain­abil­ity, Man­ag­ing Per­sonal Fi­nance and un­der­stand­ing Em­ploy­ment, Busi­ness and En­ter­prise.

Speak­ing at the launch of the Col­lege’s adult cour­ses, Hop­wood Hall Col­lege Prin­ci­pal, Derek O’Toole, said: “The free cour­ses present a great op­por­tu­nity for adults to ap­ply now, re­train and find new di­rec­tion in their life.

“With nearly 5000 stu­dents cur­rently study­ing with us al­ready and the sec­ond high­est Of­sted rat­ing avail­able, we feel con­fi­dent we can of­fer a whole new part of the com­mu­nity the op­por­tu­ni­ties to fur­ther them­selves and their ed­u­ca­tion.”
