College launch free adult courses
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.”
