As the country slowly readjusts to a ‘new normal’ following the Covid 19 pandemic, Burnley College is racing ahead, supporting its ambitious Adult Learners to retrain, refresh their skills or restart their career dreams on a diverse range of courses starting this April.

Using its unique links with employers and expert industry knowledge, the College has identified priority training and employment needs across the region – and developed a versatile offer to meet those requirements – making our students work-ready right now.

It’s one of the pioneering ways Burnley College is making sure its Adult Learners, present and future, don’t miss out on a single opportunity to progress in their careers and reach their goals.

Forward-thinking Tutors at the College are delivering courses which lead to sought-after, career-enhancing qualifications in subjects ranging from Electrical Engineering or Welding to Business Management, Healthcare to Teaching and more – and now’s the perfect time to apply.

Karen Buchanan, Principal of Burnley College, said:

“We are committed to ensuring all of our dedicated Adult Learners receive the expert tuition and support they need to overcome any barriers to career success and change their lives.

“The world has changed so much over the last 12 months and we recognise our Adult Learners are eager to start their journey to success right now.

“We’re leading the way, delivering the courses our Adult Learners need and offering the individual support to make a real difference to their lives today – and in the future.”

The nation’s employment landscape has changed dramatically due to the pandemic with many people being furloughed, made redundant or struggling in business. Some industries are adapting to a changing marketplace and others, such as construction and healthcare, have seen an expansion in available career routes and progression opportunities for motivated individuals with the right skills and knowledge.
