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.Kathryn Morgan (Limavady)
I studied Level 2 Maths and English and successfully passed both. It was a great course, and it was great working in a smaller group. I’ve made friends for life and I’m considering progressing to another part-time course with the College.Paul Cotton (Strabane)
