The publication features a wide range of programmes from a variety of subject areas, with most starting in the autumn and some in January, and a number which can be done at any time.
Courses featured include those related to career advancement, such as management and supervision qualifications, and many which are specific to job areas, such as hair and beauty, construction, engineering and catering.
There is a section on the College's Discover adult education courses, which are aimed at people who would like to take shorter courses as a hobby or to get a taste of a particular subject before considering further study.
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 (pictured) said: "There is something for everyone in our new part-time course guide, from longer courses aimed at enhancing career prospects to lighter learning for recreation.
"It is now more important than ever to have a strong CV and our courses can help you take your next step up the career ladder, move into a new profession or simply learn something new."

The part-time course guide has been distributed to more than 120,000 homes in the East Riding and Hull. Anyone who did not get a copy can get one from East Riding College sites in Gallows Lane, Beverley, and St Mary's Walk, Bridlington, where the full-time and higher education course guides for programmes starting in September are also available.
