Our outdoor courses are the perfect opportunity to explore our grounds, meet new people and develop new skills. These courses are the perfect place to start if you have had a break from work or education – our Student Support Team will work with you to develop a pathway to achieve your ambitions.
Our outdoor courses provide a great opportunity for people to learn teamwork and communications skills, and how to work on their own initiative, as well as developing new skills and knowledge. The grounds of our beautiful college provide an alternative classroom environment where you can begin your journey into education and start to feel more confident about moving on to other courses. Join us and see where you path leads you.
I would recommend Northern College to anyone looking to develop a long term academic career in a safe and healthy environment with loads of inspiration and caring staff to work with.

Staying residential was the perfect way for me to learn. As well as the course subject, which everyone is involved in, learning extends beyond the class room.
Being residential added to this experience, as one really felt part of a learning community.
Awesome tutors and a very friendly place. I wish I was still there.
I was made to feel that I did matter and that I was worthy. I was encouraged and supported when I thought I couldn't do it. Despite all the failures I had previously had at other places, I did it at Northern College because I was supported by people who believed in me.
