Department of Lifelong Learning

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Department of Lifelong Learning, evening and part-time courses prospectus.

As you work your way through the various programmes on offer, I hope that you will find at least one course that meets your requirements.

Our mission in the Department of Lifelong Learning is to provide the adult learner with flexible and innovative learning routes, enabling the learner achieve a third level qualification while also recognising they have work, family and indeed life commitments. In doing this we aim to partner with you, the student, to ensure that your third level learning and normal daily life can co-exist as you attain your qualification.

This year, as the economy continues to grow we have in excess of 20 additional programmes that may be of interest to you. Such programmes range from Millinery Design through to a Masters in Environmental, Health and Safety Management – in the majority chosen based on perceived demand that exists for such skills in the workplace. In particular for those working in the Midlands region.

As you read our 2017/2018 prospectus I would ask that you reflect on the old saying ‘Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance’. And in doing so, I would impress on you that if you identify an area of learning you are interested in that you contact us and register sooner rather than later. Or indeed, if you just want to get more information, why not contact us or drop in to meet with us and we will gladly discuss your options with you. In doing so you will be ensuring that when September finally races around that you are fully organised and prepared for your active year of learning ahead – where you will have considered in an organised manner learning, family, finances, work and life commitments and, thereby maximising your potential for success.

Finally, I am delighted to advise that we have over 100 free places on three programmes. See pages 12 and 13 for further details.

See you in September!
