From part-time programmes to distance learning and continuous development courses, Walsall College have even more courses that adult learners can fit around family and work commitments.
Since joining with Walsall Adult and Community College this year, we now have a wider range of courses that are accessible for those living across the borough and further afield.
Courses are available in a range of subjects including Finance, Management, Automotive, Engineering, Welding, Childcare, Health and Social Care, Computing and ICT, Construction, Creative Industries, Hair and Beauty, Customer Service, Hospitality and Cookery, ESOL, Law and HR.
This year, we have a huge range of distance learning courses on offer for those who want to study from home or work in their own time.
We have free courses in Level 2 Administration and Health and Social Care, including those that explore conditions such as Autism, learning difficulties and Dementia. The courses remain free, as long as the course is completed in the given timeframe.
At an affordable price, we also have courses for those who would like to enhance their skills and knowledge as part of their job role. From team leading and transport management to first aid and food safety, the courses are designed to help learners become more effective in their role.
For managers looking to develop their financial knowledge, we have an AAT course that will help them to understand key statements and processes, with advice on how best to manage their budget.
As part of our January offer, we are launching a new DIY course designed with women in mind. You’ll learn all the basics from plaster repairs and tiling to basic carpentry, which includes drilling, fixing, skirting and shelving.
Learners can use their skills to fix issues around their home, saving them money whilst enhancing their wellbeing and home equity.
Cost is often the common reason why some adults are reluctant to return to education. But with an Advanced Learning Loan, adult learners can pay for their course in manageable instalments.
The scheme is also open to any UK resident aged 19 or older who is looking to enrol on a level 3 course or above, including QCF Certificates and Diplomas and Access to HE courses.
Jatinder Sharma OBE, Principal and Chief Executive of Walsall College, said: “At Walsall College, we are passionate in our belief that education should be accessible to all, regardless of age or background. Learning new skills should be a continuous journey and a means of helping individuals to achieve their goals.
As a college, we pride ourselves in empowering those within our community to develop the skills they need to enter the industries they wish to enter, and to achieve success."
