Whether you want to take up a new hobby, learn a new skill, find out if a subject is for you, or gain the knowledge to change direction, we have a part-time course for you.

Choose from distance learning courses that can be studied in your own home and in your own time, to Skills Bootcamps, which are delivered in partnership with local employers.

You can receive accreditations with one of our rural skills courses, enabling you to work in areas of the land-based sector.
