NEW - Online Classes
New this year we will be building on the success of the Macbeth@Home course by adding a selection of Online classes that will start in September. If you need to stay at home, or just prefer to, we will have courses for you to learn new things, keep engaged, build your skills and have fun!
We will keep this site updated with information on the new classes, as they are agreed, and for more information please see our Macbeth@Home Flyer.
There are four levels of courses to suit learners with different ability levels
•Preparation for work
Preparation for work
These courses consist of the Retail and Administration project and the Hospitality and Catering project and are ideal for people who have a realistic expectation of moving into paid work and would like to gain some experience of employment. It is strongly suggested that learners have gained experience through Personal Development or similar courses before enrolling. Learners will hopefully progress into work, further work based programmes or advanced courses.
These courses are ideal for people who are able to commit to a long term learning programme and happy to work independently. Learners will complete their own accreditation portfolios and work towards a number of personal and class goals.
The All Welcome level courses are an ideal starting point for learners who are new to college, have severe learning difficulties or disabilities, struggle with long periods of commitment or have taken a long break from education. The courses require an interview, run for 10 weeks and give learners the chance to experience and integrate themselves into adult education. All Welcome courses focus on developing personal and social skills to enhance learning and life.
Inclusive courses focus on developing personal and social skills to enhance learning and life.
All Special Educational Needs courses require an interview before enrolling.
