    I studied the OCN Level 2 Award in Bakery & Patisserie. My course was delivered in the College's kitchens. There was a sense of community and a warm relaxing atmosphere throughout. If I was to describe my experience in 3 words it would be fun, exciting and therapeutic!

    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.

    NWRC has helped me develop in my career, improving my skills in technology and business development. I will continue to be involved with the College. Life Long Learning is key to long and healthy relationships.

    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.
