Whether you’re looking for a new hobby, gain skills to progress at work or simply need qualifications to start a new career, you’ll find a wide range of short, part-time and professional courses at NPTC Group of Colleges.

Part-time learning can enhance your current job prospects or kick-start a brand new career in many sectors, especially those with skills shortages. You’ll be able to gain new skills and qualifications that local employers need to help you progress or to change careers altogether.

Our courses run throughout the year, are flexible and offer small class sizes offering one-to-one support.

We have funding available and many courses are free, depending on your circumstances and eligibility*.
