Tutor and student at desk with laptop



Begin with short courses introducing you to the different ways in which adults learn. This can lead to teacher training courses (level 3 to 7) giving you the skills to work as a teacher, tutor or lecturer in adult learning. Our BA (Hons) Education and Professional Development course enables people who already hold a level 5 teaching qualification to achieve a degree.

Was an amazing experience. The staff were all friendly and approachable. Hoping to start there this coming October.
