    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.

    The College offers so many great opportunities and experiences. I got to study in Atlanta, Georgia as part of my course and now I'm employed as a full-time Business Analyst with NWRC's Business Support Centre.
