MTC Adult Learning Centre
MTC is New College’s Adult Learning Centre based in Swindon Town Centre.
At MTC we pride ourselves on our inclusive teaching. We offer courses to both native speakers and speakers of other languages. All of our courses are delivered in a community setting by experienced tutors who will tailor the teaching to the group, go at a steady pace and support you throughout your course – so if you are nervous about returning to learning or simply like the convenience of a smaller central learning location, then MTC could be the place for you.
We offer a range of English, Maths and Computing courses as follows:
English and Maths
Introduction to Learning – English OR Introduction to Learning - Maths
These courses are aimed at those that have been out of learning for some time, or who have never studied in this country. They provide a gentle introduction to study skills and cover some basics of English (or Maths) enabling you to progress onto the English (or Maths) Skills Award.
English Skills Award OR Maths Skills Award
These courses are aimed at learners that wish to complete a short course in English or Maths to build their confidence to progress onto the Functional Skills courses. They are 6 weeks long.
Functional Skills - English or Maths
Functional skills are recognised qualifications that provide learners with useful and transferable skills in English or Maths that will help them gain or progress in employment.
During the English course you will work on your Speaking, Listening and Reading and Writing skills in a friendly and supportive environment. At higher levels you will brush up on grammar, punctuation and spelling (if appropriate) and practise reading and writing for different purposes and audiences. You will be encouraged to use computers to format and present your work. The course will also cover speaking & listening skills.
During the Maths course you will work on all aspects of Maths in a friendly and supportive environment.
We offer a range of four different IT courses. From Entry Level up to Level 2, we’re sure to have the right level for you. You don’t need to have had any experience with a computer before.
If you are on JSA, ESA or Universal Credit then many of the courses will be free.
