Northern College Partner Networking Event: Covid-19 recovery

Join Northern College and our partners at a free virtual networking event to meet like-minded organisations working together to support adults whose job roles may have been impacted by Covid-19.

Northern College is the only residential college in the North working with adults aged 19 and over to re-enter education to progress, gain employment or retrain for a new career.

Our aim is to support adults including those impacted by Covid-19 to rebuild their confidence and progress, gain employment or retrain for a new career – whilst meeting employer skills gaps to help rebuild our economy. This includes those whose job roles have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19, e.g. 19-24 year olds, and adults wanting to retrain.

We offer many courses that eligible adults on low incomes or who are unemployed can access for free. We can also provide adult centred guidance on career pathways, course funding options, and accessing support for things such as travel and childcare.

The college has a long history of engaging adults who have no or few qualifications, are unemployed or in low paid roles – in addition to adults in established careers who want to retrain. Our students rapidly progress and excel in their studies and transform their lives.

At our events, you will:

Learn how to refer eligible adults to courses they can study for free.

Learn about other funding support options available to support adults to return to learning.

Share ideas about how we can work together to signpost and support individuals in our communities to upskill and retrain to gain employment.

Request to attend to provide a ‘partner spotlight’ feature, to inform other partners about your work to support individuals.

The demands of the modern UK workplace or community, and the current economic impact of Covid means that adult learning is crucial for people of all ages regardless of their level of skills and qualifications.

These regular events for our partners will run over the Spring and the Summer and open to new organisations and employers, as well as those who have partnered with Northern College for a while. Dates include:

  • 30th March
  • 27th April
  • 25th May
  • 24th June
  • 27th July
  • 2nd September
