The spring 2011 edition, featuring hundreds of courses starting from January, is now available and is being distributed across East Yorkshire.
The publication features a wide range of programmes from a variety of subject areas, starting from January onwards and with a number which can be undertaken 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 health and safety, 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 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 said: "A new year often turns people's attention to making a change in their life and this course guide can help you do just that, whether you want to improve your chances of promotion, find a new job or start a hobby.
"If you are interested in taking a course but are unsure which is right for you, our award-winning guidance officers will be happy to talk through your options with you."
