North West Regional College is very proud of our partnerships with local schools and we are delighted with the continued success of the School Links programme. “NWRC offers a wide range of vocational qualifications to post primary school pupils at our campuses in Strabane, Strand Road, Springtown, Greystone and Limavady. These qualifications are designed to provide pupils with a vocational qualification in their selected areas, alongside their GCSE studies. “The pupils attend the college one day per week and have found this very beneficial in assisting them to gain an insight into a career path they may not have considered beforehand and to prepare them for further education. I’d like to wish them all every success with their future careers. “I would also like to thank Derg Mourne Learning Community and all schools involved in collaboration with NWRC.” For further information on courses at NWRC visit www.nwrc.ac.uk
