Learn, Refresh and Impress

What do you want to achieve this year? Whether you’ve set your mind on a promotion, want to learn a new language or simply want to expand your skills – we can help you make it happen.


Career courses or learning for fun 

Studying part-time is a rewarding experience - you'll meet likeminded people and achieve something to be proud of.

We have a huge choice of courses, all led by our skilled and friendly team of tutors who will guide you through your studies and help you make the most of your time with us.

These courses start at various times throughout the year and are designed to fit around you. You'll see that they're held at different locations around Nottingham, including ncn’s campuses and venues in your community. 

Time for a change? 

Inside the Adult Course Guide you can find out which sectors we offer apprenticeships in. If you want to hit the ground running in a new career then an apprenticeship could be your perfect way in - you'll learn on the job whilst being paid a wage.

Always wanted to go to university, but lacked the grades to do so? Then one of our Access to Higher Education courses could be your fast-track route to higher level study. Read our inspiring case studies and see if there’s an access course to suit your aspirations.
