Adult Learners

Adult Learners

At HLC we have an incredibly broad range of full time, part time and short courses - all designed to help you learn new skills, gain qualifications to enhance careers prospects or just discover something new.

Whether you are aiming for a promotion, looking to start afresh with new skills, or there’s a particular qualification you need, we can help you.

From entry level through to Higher Education, foundation degrees and professional qualifications, our courses are carefully designed to give you the skills employers need.

Our tutors have a wealth of industry experience which is supported by the state-of-the-art facilities available at our campuses. This combination of elements enhances the learning experience of our students and provides a quality environment in which you can learn.

Full Time Courses

With most of our full time programmes actually being only 3 days per week, we find that many of our adult learners are able to combine their studies with part time work.

Short Courses

We offer a wide range of short courses -both leisure and legislative. These can be found under their relevant subject headings on our part time course listing page.

Higher Education

HLC offers an Access to Higher Education course which is ideal for those wishing to return to education after a break and progress to study at university level. The course runs during family friendly hours and is an excellent way to make a new start.

We offer a variety of Higher Education courses at HLC providing students with the opportunity to study locally, offering good value for money and increased flexibility for those with work or family commitments.

Fees and Financial Support

Course costs vary considerably, as only some receive a government subsidy. We strongly advise that prospective students call the College to confirm the latest costs. For further information visit our Fees Guidance page. If the costs are concerning you, don't miss information on Advanced Learner Loans. Most learners aged 24 and over, studying at level 3 and above, will qualify for these loans. From September 2016, learners aged between 19 and 23 years will also qualify for a loan if they already hold a qualification at level 3. It’s easy to apply, your household income isn’t taken into account and there is no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 a year.

Tim Hartles

National Fleet Manager for RAC

CMI Postgraduate Diploma in Management & Leadership Level 7

I’ve been working for the RAC for 22 years
and despite having extensive training and
development in-house I felt I needed to do some
management training externally; to benchmark
myself and bring something new to the business.
It is good to share ideas with fellow managers
from different sectors and to learn new ways
of working. I did look at other courses at other
universities and colleges but they mostly didn’t
fit into my work schedule and were expensive.
