    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.

    There’s such a social and friendly atmosphere at the college. My lecturers are extremely supportive and the facilities are first class.
