Did you know that we help people aged 19 and over back into education to change their lives?

February 9, 2022

Calling all voluntary and community organisations

To support this, we are currently offering voluntary and community organisations:

• Free group taster sessions to help adults back into education
• Fully funded residential courses for eligible students
• Transport into college
• No entry requirements for many courses

Our residential courses are two full days and one night at our stunning campus in South Yorkshire, surrounded by over 500 acres of National Trust gardens and parkland. This offers the ideal spot for students to focus on their studies with like-minded peers and receive exceptional support throughout.

Residential courses are fully funded for many students up to level 2. This is usually if they are unemployed, on certain benefits, or earn £17,374.50 a year or less. We also offer some digital courses free to all adults, regarding of income, alongside English and Maths. A residential stay for these courses includes bed, breakfast and evening meal.

There are many courses and subjects available, and we are open to conversations to meet the needs of groups and organisations. Subjects include but are not limited to outdoor courses in Forest Skills, English, Digital, Maths, Team Leadership, Volunteering, Peer Mentoring, Substance Misuse, First Aid, Enterprise Skills and Counselling.

We are also able to offer three-hour taster courses on your own premises should this be more appropriate. These courses can be negotiated on a bespoke level ensuring that the needs of your group are met. See our website for ideas and examples of delivery: www.northern.ac.uk

Many of our students describe their period of short intensive study at Northern College as life changing, as our students progress onto higher level courses and work.

If you require any further information and to book your residential learning opportunity email awright@northern.ac.uk or telephone: 0778 7504841.
