    I passed my Essential Skills in English after taking a community course with NWRC, through the Roe Valley Residents Association. The class was very relaxed and I had a brilliant tutor in Conal McNickle. I would highly recommend taking a class at your local community hub, and I’m now considering further learning with the College.

    I’m so glad I was able to spend the last 2 years focused on Art, rather than having to study 3 different subjects
