Returning to Learning

Our returning to learning course is aimed at anyone who wishes to pursue academic study after some time out of the classroom.  The course provides learners with the opportunity to gain GCSE qualifications in English and maths (essential for onward progression) and also to develop confidence in their academic skills. As well as this, learners will have the chance to complete a range of industry recognised qualifications relevant to health and social care.  By the end of the course learners will be in a strong position to embark on one of our L3 Access to HE diplomas.

The course offers an incredible amount of flexibility and requires just one day per week in college (Mondays in Beverley, Wednesdays in Bridlington).
