The New Year is a time to reflect on the year that has been and to set fresh goals for the future. Do you keep doing what you have been doing or tackle new challenges? With a vast array of full-time, part-time and apprenticeship courses starting from January onwards at Shrewsbury College, the opportunities are impressive.

Part-time courses range from professional qualifications, to trade skills and leisure courses, so whether you want to develop your skills, pursue a new career or improve in your current one by gaining an extra qualification, or just enjoy a hobby course for fun, the College offers qualifications from Photography to Counselling and Business to Welding. Part-time courses range from one day up to a year.

To offer prospective students educational choice, instead of having to wait until September, Shrewsbury College has full-time courses for 16-18-year olds starting in January. The courses are aimed at those who may have started a course at another college and found it wasn’t for them, were too late in applying to college and missed the September start, or who simply aren’t in education or training and want to gain a qualification. The full-time courses include Level 1 City and Guilds Certificate in Engineering and Welding, Level 2 Cosmetic Make-up, Level 2 Diploma in Performing Arts and a Level 3 Enhanced Employability and Enterprise course.

Apprenticeships can start at any time throughout the year.

Catherine Armstrong, Group Vice Principal for Curriculum Support and Business Development said: “Continuing education into adulthood is so important and is a vital part of what a college such as ours provides. We listen to feedback and aim to provide a broad range of courses which will enhance people’s careers or simply give them the satisfaction of developing a new skill in life.”

So as we start this new year, maybe this really is the time to make a change, set some goals and embark on developing new skills.
