Improve English, Maths and ICT

Fantastic New Premises. The Adult Learning Centre at New College has moved!

We are no longer in the Manchester Road building opposite the bus station but have relocated our fantastic facilities to a great building just a few blocks away at Focalpoint on the corner of Fleet Street & Fleming way. Just a 2 minute walk from our current location.

To view our new teaching spaces you can visit on our open day - just call 01793 511665 to book a time or email alc@newcollege.ac.uk to ensure we keep you safe with social distancing in place. We look forward to welcoming you to chat about our regular Maths, English and IT courses all offered in a relaxed and friendly environment. The centre also offers a great choice of employability and Community Learning courses with a weekly Job Club that is open to all with new courses being added all the time.
