Courses for New Year in Latest Guide

1st December 2008 2:40pm - Return to press releases

East Riding College's new part-time course guide, featuring dozens of courses starting in the new year, is now available.

Anyone who wants to learn new skills or improve their career prospects will be able to choose from a wide range of subjects, such as Bookkeeping, Play Work, Indian Head Massage, Counselling Skills, Skills for Life, Languages, Health and Safety, and Teaching.

Many of the courses start in January but some can be done at any time. There are sections on Basic Skills, such as Literacy and Numeracy, and IT, from basic computing to more advanced courses.

The guide also contains courses for employers with training needs in subjects such as Food Safety, First Aid and Health and Safety.

Courses range from half-day short courses to two-year programmes and from entry level to degree level.

Principal Derek Branton said: "Lots of people are inspired to train for a change in career or learn something different after the new year.

"Our latest course guide gives details of a wide range of courses which can give you the skills and qualifications to get a new job, advance in your current place of work or just satisfy your interest in a particular subject.

"As well as courses for individuals, there are many programmes which enable employers to increase skill levels in their workforce and meet the requirements of various pieces of legislation."

The guide is available from East Riding College sites in Gallows Lane, Beverley, St Mary's Walk, Bridlington, Lancaster Road, Carnaby, and St James Street, Hull.

The College's new full-time and higher education course guides, both for courses starting in autumn 2009, are also available.

The part-time course guide for courses starting is September, which contains a much wider choice of courses, will be published in May 2009.
