Improve your mental health and well-being, build you confidence and develop new skills with a Bury College adult course starting this New Year.

From January 2021, the College is offering a wide range of courses in a variety of sectors including Business and Accounting, English, Maths and Digital Skills and Health and Care. Specifically designed to provide adults with the opportunity to gain new skills, knowledge and experience, these new courses are available in a range of areas and at different levels.

Many courses are free for eligible learners* meaning that more adults than ever can access training. Following the recent unforeseen circumstances surrounding Covid-19, individuals may wish to use this as an opportunity to re-train for free and discover a new opportunity or to further their career progression.
