Adults - Make that return to learning!

Learning has no age limit

Returning to education a little later in life can seem daunting, but at NWRC extensive support is available to build your confidence and help you feel prepared

For many adults, the decision to return to education is life-changing, opening up new career prospects and employment opportunities. Many are returning to college after a break in their education, some are looking to retrain for a new career, while others are trying to make the most out of opportunities they may not have had when they were younger.

We believe that education is for everyone, regardless of age.

Find your course

With our exciting range of courses for adults, you can enhance your career prospects, gain a promotion or get back into education after a break. It's never too late to learn something new.

    It made sense for me to study in an area where I could work alongside my studies. There is a huge benefit to the HLA because you can study locally, there’s no course fees and you learn about the industry while you’re working. There are so many employment opportunities!

    As Entrepreneur in Residence at NWRC one of my key roles is to identify and support innovative ideas and entrepreneurial thinking throughout the college network. The IDEATOR Awards serves as a stepping stone for both students and recent NWRC student alumni to develop innovative business ideas further.
